Our aim here is to provide advice and information on diabetes and foot health.
We are a team of Podiatrists who work across the city in various settings and provide advice and treatment to people with Diabetes.
There are lots of myths and misconceptions about how diabetes affects your feet, what care you should be taking and what kind of treatment you require. Although advice is tailored to each individual there is lots of advice and information that can be followed by everyone.
Here are some handy tips on how you can love and care your feet:
- Check how they are doing every day. Take time out to have a look at them and make sure they are doing ok.
- If they seem a little dry and need of TLC pop some moisturising cream on them. Give them a good rub on the soles and heel but not in between the toes.
- If you want to treat your feet to a new pair of shoes always try them on in the afternoon as this is when your feet are at their biggest and they will fit better and be more comfortable.
If you look after your feet then they will look after you. Take the time now to love your feet and they will give you a lifetime of happiness.
