Footcare for diabetes

Foot and leg problems are the most common reason for daibetes related hospitalisation and diabetes is the leading cause of amputation of the foot and lower limb. Regular neurological (nerve supply) and vascular (circulation) assessments are very important in order to monitor the effect that diabetes is having on the feet – the earlier that any compromise in the blood or nerve supply is found then the lesser the risk of any complications arising.

At Mildenhall Footcare we can perform regular vascular and neurological assessments as well as visits inbetween for general footcare. A copy of the results of the assessment are then sent to the patients GP to be held within their records.
