Diabetic Foot Checks

Diabetic foot checks are routine examinations performed by healthcare professionals to assess the foot health of individuals with diabetes. These checks are crucial because diabetes can lead to nerve damage and poor circulation in the feet, making them vulnerable to various complications such as ulcers, infections, and even amputation if not properly managed.

Importance of Diabetic Foot Checks

Regular foot checks are essential for people with diabetes as they help to identify potential problems early and therefore help to prevent problems, such as ulcers and infections. At Doveston Health, we offer a comprehensive diabetic foot check to ensure your feet remain healthy and issue-free.

What’s Involved in a Diabetic Foot Check?

At Doveston Health, we professionally assess the condition of your skin, the blood flow to your feet, and the nerve function in your feet. If there are any abnormalities, we will create a personalized treatment plan. This may include appropriate wound care, benefits of the use of correct footwear, use of well-fitted orthoses to relieve everyday pressure, or even a change of footwear to improve support of your feet and gait.

We also will guide you on appropriate daily foot care, such as looking for signs of injury or infection, and the right way to wash and moisturize your feet.

By having regular diabetic foot checks, we can keep you on top of your foot health. With in-depth guidance from a professional with years of experience.
