According to Diabetes Australia, if you have are in the low risk category of diabetes you need to have your feet checked annually by a podiatrist.  If you are in the high risk category of diabetes it is suggested that you are checked every 3 – 6 months.  How do you know if you are high or low risk? Well our comprehensive foot check will determine this.

In Australia alone, around 3,000 amputations are performed every year on the feet of adults with diabetes, with some of these conditions easily preventable with pro-active treatment. Annual pulse and circulation checks of your feet will help identify these issues before they develop into a serious complication.

Diabetes causes changes to nerve endings resulting in numbness of the affected area. People with diabetes can potentially and unknowingly injure themselves, resulting in wounds that are not treated and do not heal. Additionally, circulation problems can be apparent, causing an increased risk of infection.
