What to Expect at your Annual Foot Check
People with diabetes are much more likely to suffer serious foot problems because raised blood sugars reduce circulation and feeling. This damage can lead to amputations. Diabetes is to blame for over 150 amputations in the UK each week. But most foot problems can be prevented. That’s why keeping a close eye on your feet is vital. Looking at your feet every day and having a trained healthcare professional check them at least once a year is an essential part of your diabetes care.
