Reclaim your lifestyle

If you have diabetes and do not take precautions to maintain healthy feet, you are likely to suffer foot problems caused by nerve damage, poor circulation and infections. Diabetes decreases blood flow, so injuries are slow to heal.

Signs and symptoms

If you have any of the following signs and symptoms, then seek professional assistance:

  • Burning, tingling or pain
  • Red spots, blisters, calluses, ulcers or infected corns or nails
  • Slow-healing sores
  • Tenderness and swelling
  • Hair loss on your toes, feet or lower legs
  • Red streaks or change in the skin colour or general appearance of your feet
  • Numbness, loss of sensation to heat, cold or touch
  • Bad circulation
  • Infections
  • A small wound or blister that won’t heal

If you find that getting out and about is a painful experience, make a booking or visit Orthotic House today.

Early prevention can reduce your chance of problems

Simply follow a regular foot care routine:

Foot care

  • Check your feet and toes, including the tops, sides, soles and heels, for any cracked skin, redness, sores, cuts, blisters and bruises
  • Use a mirror or ask for help if needed

Wash your feet

  • Daily in warm water with a gentle soap
  • Harsh soaps and hot water can damage your skin.
  • Use your elbow to check the water temperature because your diabetes may make it difficult to sense the temperature with your feet

Dry your feet

  • Infection develops in moist areas. Pat your feet dry, including the area between your toes

Moisturise dry skin

  • Use a natural moisturiser if your feet feel dry or rough. Do not use moisturiser between your toes
