Diabetic footcare is necessary to ensure a stable foot and lower limb health. Diabetic Australia has been recommending patients to have an annual visit to their podiatrist to reassess their foot health status. It is noted that diabetic patients who fail to follow their treatment plan encounter issues in the foot and lower limb areas in many ways. If left untreated, these problems may evolve into something much more serious and harmful.
Some cases of patients who are experiencing more mild symptoms are said to have been affected by dryness and tingling in the toe area. More serious issues derived from the impacted circulatory system and the lower limb nerves can include peripheral vascular disease (PVD), peripheral neuropathy or numbness in the foot and lower limb area, and immunodeficiency disorders. Lack of sensation in the sole region can further lead to neuropathic ulceration.
Taking all that in consideration, our friendly and qualified podiatrists here in PhyxMe Physiotherapy make sure that you are well-taken care of by performing calculations on the sensation, circulation, and biomechanics to see to it that you are taking the right precautions.
