Our Podiatrists are highly involved in the management of foot health in people with Diabetes. People with Diabetes are more prone to foot problems than those without and require regular assessment to ensure they are not developing complications associated with Diabetes, this may include ulcers, nerve damage or circulation impairment.

At the Melbourne Foot Clinic all of our Podiatrists are all experienced in performing thorough Diabetes Assessments and providing comprehensive reports to patient’s doctors and other health care professionals. This ensures that your team of carers keep well-informed of any potential problems.

We aim to provide clear and simple advice to you on how to keep your diabetic feet healthy.

Diabetes – foot care – Better Health Channel

Diabetes affects the feet in two ways. It can reduce blood circulation and also damage the nerves to the feet. Good foot care can help people with diabetes to avoid foot problems. Take care of your feet, get regular check-ups from your doctor or podiatrist and act quickly if you have a problem.
