Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetics are strongly advised to take particular care of their feet. They may suffer complications as a result of their diabetes. These can include neurovascular changes in the foot leading to diminished sensation, development of ulcers and wounds that are slow to heal.
A neurological assessment will help to highlight any early signs of poor foot health. The results and advice are given to the patient, and with their permission they may be referred to their G.P or Diabetic Nurse.
