Diabetes Foot Careadmin
For those of us living with diabetes, foot care is a very important part of our overall diabetes health management routine. Common complications such as poor circulation and nerve damage can be avoided if you look after your feet and get fast treatment when you have a problem.
Here are some simple diabetes foot care tips that may help to include in your healthcare routine:
- Regularly inspect your feet for signs of infection or for any cuts or sores.
- Wash your feet daily and make sure to dry well, especially between the toes.
- Moisturise dry skin, especially cracked heels using an intensive cream such as Dia Balm Foot Cream. Try and avoid putting moisturiser between the toes, however, as this area should be kept dry.
- Wear comfortable shoes to protect your feet.
- Have toenails, corns or calluses treated by a health professional before they become an issue for your feet.
It is recommended that people with Diabetes get their feet checked at least once a year by a podiatrist or a doctor. You can find more information on foot health at these resources:
