What are diabetic foot problems?

If you have diabetes, make sure to schedule routine check-ups with a podiatrist and invest in proper footwear to safeguard your foot health. These preventive measures can play a significant role in minimising the risk of severe complications associated with diabetic neuropathy.

Seemingly minor issues in the feet can escalate into serious complications if not detected and addressed early on. Regular podiatry visits are crucial for monitoring foot health, allowing for the early identification and treatment of potential problems.
