Diabetic Foot Clinic

Foot care amongst diabetics is incredibly important as foot related complications are common for people with diabetes. Foot ulcers for example, which affect as many as 1 out of 10 people with diabetes, can all too easily develop from blisters and small wounds, they can even pose a threat of amputation. Even small ulcers on the foot can represent a serious risk: they may heal extremely slowly and need rigorous treatment to cure.

Caring for your feet

Foot care involves reducing damage from occurring to your feet and regularly checking your feet for any

signs of damage. Damage to your feet can be reduced by avoiding walking barefoot, wearing correctly fitting footwear and keeping your feet clean and in good condition. Check your feet every day for any signs of damage.

What is Diabetic Foot?

Diabetic patients are prone for foot infections due to three main causes:
1. Uncontrolled Diabetes

2. Peripheral neuropathy (Sensory Loss)
3. Peripheral vasculopathy (decreased blood Supply). One or all of the above causes contribute in spreading small infections, fast leading to gangrene and sometimes amputation.

Who should undergo foot evaluation?

All diabetic patients should undergo foot evaluation every year and as per the evaluation report should

wear protective footwear.

How frequently the evaluation is to be done?

The frequency of evaluation depends on the level of damage to nerves and blood vessels as well as

the existing complications. Usually it is done once a year but in some patients it needs to be done more frequently.
