DIABETES ASSESSMENTS

Diabetes Foot Assessments play a key role in establishing the likelihood of a diabetic complication arising. If you have been diagnosed with Type I or Type II Diabetes, it is crucial that you have your feet assessed every 6-12 months.

A Diabetes Foot Assessment includes:

  • Checking the overall health of your arterial blood supply (blood flow to the feet)
  • Testing your neurological status (nerves)
  • Recognising any venous inefficiencies (blood supply away from the feet, back up to the heart)
  • Provide expert footwear advice
  • Provide education on how to lower your blood glucose levels, care for your feet and improve your overall lifestyle
The results from your assessment will be recorded in a full medical report and sent to your GP, Diabetes Educator and any other specialist you request for them to be sent to.
