Treating & Preventing Diabetic Foot Disease

Diabetes is a chronic metabolic condition which affects the body’s ability to utilize, process and distribute blood sugar. High sugar levels over a period of time can affect many tissues in the body. The two main ways poor sugar control can harm feet are by:

  • Nerve damage causing loss of feeling in feet
  • Reduced blood supply to feet

If diabetes is poorly managed this can lead to serious foot complications. Our podiatrists are experienced in assessing and managing patients with diabetes. We will communicate with your general practitioner and other specialists to develop a plan to maintain good foot health and function.
