Diabetes Management

Podiatrists are heavily involved with the management of diabetes complications once a person has been diagnosed with diabetes. People with diabetes are a lot more susceptible to feet problems than those without. The main areas affected through diabetes are impaired circulation and reduced sensation (neuropathy).

It is recommended that everyone with diabetes attends the podiatrist annually for a diabetes foot assessment. Those who have problems will often need more regular appointments.

The podiatrists at the Sunbury Foot Clinic are all experienced in diabetes foot care management and will offer a thorough assessment and provide feedback for your GP or relevant other health care professionals so as the whole team is aware of any potential problems.
