Diabetes can affect the blood vessels of the legs and feet which lead to reduced circulation (vascular disease).This can have a significant effect on healing. Diabetes can also affect the nerve endings in the feet leading to reduced sensation (neuropathy). This may result in foot problems going unnoticed.
A Diabetes Foot Screening appointment will involve:
- Vascular assessment
- Assessment of blood supply to the feet including use of an ultrasound Doppler machine to listen to the quality of blood flow (a painless & non-invasive examination)
- Assessment of nerve supply / sensation to the feet • Basic biomechanical assessment of the feet
- Discussion regarding general health, diabetes control and lifestyle
- Discussion regarding management and prevention of foot problems.
