Diabetes is a complex condition that can cause many complications within the body with the feet also being seriously affected in some cases.
Circulation, sensation, healing, changes to the skin and changes to the structures of the foot are just a few complications that can develop. Your doctor should send you for an annual foot screening to assess how the feet are being effected and identify any risks before they further develop. Here at Podiatry Plus Scotland we offer comprehensive foot screening for all patients with diabetes at your initial assessment, this will also be offered on a yearly basis. The team at Podiatry Plus Scotland are also experienced in treating repercussions of diabetes on the feet. A wide range of dressings and pressure reduction methods can be offered to heal the foot and reduce the opportunity of the wound recurring.
