Diabetes and the feet

Diabetes significantly affects your feet.

It can reduce the blood flow to the foot and reduce its ability to heal.

It can also cause a loss of sensation in your feet (often starting at the toes) and is referred to as peripheral neuropathy. Sometimes, the loss of feeling in the feet can also involve a burning sensation that can be irritated by the wearing of shoes and socks and is worse at night. This is known as painful peripheral neuropathy. 

In our diabetic assessment we will check your ability to sense pressure, temperature and vibration as well as your circulation. We will usually pass on your result to your GP if you wish.
