Why It’s Important
Foot problems are common in people living with Diabetes. Routine foot care should be an essential part of managing your condition. Diabetes may cause neuropathy (nerve damage) along with arterial disease (poor blood circulation). As a result, individuals with Diabetes are less likely to feel even the smallest of foot injuries. Left untreated, foot injuries can lead to infection and in severe cases, amputation. Ongoing, routine care can help you keep your feet healthy.
Be sure to see a Chiropodist as part of your Diabetes management regimen.
Chiropody or Podiatry?
Chiropodists are Canadian trained professionals, and Podiatrists are usually trained in another country. Chiropodists and Podiatrists work under the same scope of practice.
