Diabetic Foot Assessments
Diabetes can cause severe foot problems as high glucose levels can affect both your circulation and the nervous system (so that messages from the brain no longer reach your feet).
This can result in a loss of sensation, which means that skin damage, blisters from badly fitting footwear, ulcers and other foot problems can become quite serious before they are even noticed.
It is essential that sufferers check their feet daily for any signs of damage and also have regular foot assessments, carried out by a professional, to reduce the risk of injury, infection and other complications.
