Diabetes is one of the leading causes of ulcers and lower limb amputations with more than 4,400 amputations every year in Australia alone. Our podiatrists are able to perform assessments to ensure early detection of issues, assist in healing wounds and prevent further ulcerations. Simple foot problems, like those below, that the average person might not worry about can result in ulceration and amputations for those with diabetes.
- Cracked heels
- Ingrown toenails
We use non-invasive diagnostic assessments to look at the health of your:
- Blood circulation
- Nerve function
- Skin condition
- Bone and joint function
- Muscle function
It is essential to have these assessments performed minimum annually for any deterioration and early detection of changes.
Podiatry care is essential in the management of diabetic foot health and prevention of complications related to diabetes.
