Diabetes may affect your feet in a number of ways. Loss of sensation often starting in the toes is one of the early changes along with reduced blood flow to your feet. This may affect your ability to heal and reduce your natural ability to fight bacteria. Loss of sensation means that you may not be aware of abrasions or cuts in the skin which could lead to deeper sores or ulcers.
As a diabetic a visit to a Podiatrist will include checking for any abnormality in your blood flow or sense of pressure, touch or signs of excessive pressure, ie corns or callouses. These can then be treated and a regular treatment programme can be agreed with you.
An annual check-up is recommended with a report sent to your GP.
