Why does a Diabetes Patient need to Visit a Podiatrist?
It is recommended that a diabetes patient should have their feet checked annually by a podiatrist.
Diabetes can have a detrimental effect on blood circulation which can damage the nerves of the foot.
Foot ulcers on a diabetic patient, when not treated properly, can lead to infections and even – in severe cases – foot amputations.
A diabetic’s sufferes can be kept healthy and functional if managed properly.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do Podiatrists do for diabetics?
Podiatrists are a vital component in diabetes management.
Podiatrists are trained to access nerve damage in feet and identify and develop treatment plans for specific foot health risks.
I suffer from diabetes. Do I need a referral from a GP to visit a Podiatrist?
At the very least a diabetic patient should visit a podiatrist at least once a year, however, they should visit more frequently if a loss of feeling has occured in the feet or if ulcers develop on the feet. First For Feet’s expert podiatrist will advise on how often you should visit the clinic.
I’m a diabetic patient. Do I need a referral from a GP to visit a Podiatrist?
