Diabetic Footcare Advice

Preventing foot problems involves managing your diabetes well, controlling blood glucose levels (along with your cholesterol and blood pressure) and leading a healthy active lifestyle. Your chances of doing this will be greatly increased if you do not smoke. By adopting these measures, you can prevent or slow down any changes to the nerves and blood vessels that supply your legs and feet.

Additionally regular footcare is recommended to prevent the build-up of hard skin which can potentially go onto cause problems.  Moisturising your feet in order to keep the skin well hydrated is also important as it creates a strong physical barrier between you and the outside world.   Lastly, it is imperative that your feet are measured correctly so that you are wearing the right type of shoe for your feet.

Anyone who has diabetes should also have their feet checked regularly with a healthcare professional (Podiatrist, Nurse or Doctor) and at the very least once a year at their annual review. However, if you are at increased risk of complications, these inspections may be done more frequently.

Simple self-care measures include:

  • Check your feet every day
  • Clean and dress any cuts, scratches or wounds
  • Always wear footwear
  • Always wear shoes that fit properly
  • Never sit with your feet too close to a fire
  • Visit a podiatrist for corns and calluses
  • Avoid using corn plasters

COVID-19 STATEMENTLatest Update

The clinic has now reopened

After having been closed for more than 2-months, we are back and open to treat all patients. Following the advice given by Public Health England, and guidelines issued by The College of Podiatry, we are now able to treat all patients that are deemed to be safe. Health and safety is paramount, so we have introduced extra measures within the clinic to protect everyone. Patients can find out more about the changes being implemented on our website under ‘Coronavirus (COVID-19) Clinic Policy & Procedure’.

If you need to see a Podiatrist, please contact us and we will carry out a health check to confirm if we are able to offer you an appointment immediately. In the meantime, we are reviewing the situation on a daily basis, and will release updates on our website, by email and via our social media channels should the guidelines change again.

Appointments will only be offered to patients who we feel are no risk to others!

You can contact us by telephone on 0203 327 0194, or by email at info@podiatrystation.com
