The Diabetic Foot

DIABETIC FEET It is very important that people with diabetes take great care of their feet, as they may be at risk of damage to their circulation (vascular disease) and/or damage to the nerves, leading to reduction in sensation (neuropathy) in the feet.

FOOT CARE RULES FOR PEOPLE WITH DIABETES

INSPECT THE FEET DAILY Check between the toes Around the heel Under the foot Checking for cuts, bruises, foreign bodies, swellings, hot spots or anything out of the ordinary If the person can’t see the bottom of their feet get someone else to check them or use a mirror

CHECK FOOTWEAR Check fit Check inside for foreign objects Feel inside for rough seems, loose linings, damaged insoles Check soles of shoes for damage or foreign objects

NEVER WALK BAREFOOT!

AVOID EXTREMES OF TEMPERATURE Avoid any direct source of heat on your feet, e.g. Hot water bottles, radiators, hot sand or concrete, bath water.
