It is really important to look after your feet, especially if you have Diabetes. At MSE Podiatry we can provide a comprehensive diabetic foot check for you to take to your GP.
High blood sugar can cause diabetic neuropathy, which damages the nerves that send signals from your hands and feet. Diabetic neuropathy can cause numbness or tingling in your fingers, toes, hands, and feet.
Poor blood glucose control can cause a reduced supply of blood to the feet. This makes people with diabetes more prone to infection following any injury that breaks the skin.
When you have diabetes your skin may have decreased moisture content and reduced healing.
Good foot care and regular check-ups can help people with diabetes avoid foot issues. MSE Podiatry will provide advice on ways to maintain your foot health.
