Diabetic Assessment, Care & EducationDiabetic-Foot-3

Most foot problems that people with diabetes face arise from two complications of the disease: nerve damage and poor circulation.

  • Nerve Damage; Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Poor Circulation; Peripheral Vascular Disease

We will carry out a physical examination and a series of tests to determine the extent of your diabetic foot health. From this we can educate and advise you on a treatment plan, as well as liaise with your doctor.
