Randell's Footcare

Diabetic Footcare

Diabetes causes damage to the nerve fibres within your body, and the first ones to be affected are the ones reaching down to your legs and feet. This is called neuropathy and causes a loss of feeling. This means that you body’s ability to let you know if you have a cut or a break in the skin is reduced, so its vital you inspect your feet regularly.

Diabetes can also reduce the amount of blood reaching your legs and feet, which is essential for wound healing.  

Therefore, both your body’s ability to sense when there is a cut on your feet, and your body’s ability to heal a wound is reduced. This is why we advise you do not cut your own toenails as this could cause a wound that does not heal. Regular appointments with a podiatrist can help you best protect your feet and overall health.
