Diabetic Care

Diabetic Care

Diabetes can have very serious consequences on the feet because of the way it interacts with the blood vessels and nerves of those affected. In fact, diabetes is the leading cause of lower-limb amputation, aside from accidents and traumatic injuries. These consequences will progressively worsen over time and can include:

  • Decreased blood flow to the feet and legs
  • Diminished ability to heal and repair wounds on the feet and legs
  • Diagnose your injury/condition and explain what it means for you
  • Diminished sensation (ability to feel) across the feet
  • Numbness, burning and tingling sensations in the feet
  • Neuropathic pain and discomfort
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Ulceration (and it becomes more difficult to heal these ulcers)
  • More susceptible to infections and greater difficulty fighting off infections

Your Diabetic Foot Health Check

These effects on the feet are why it’s so important to have your regular diabetic foot health checks, so we can test and inform you of exactly which stage you’re at and what’s going on with your feet. By knowing your risks and how to avoid them and protect yourself, you’re able to prevent much pain and discomfort, as well as keeping your feet and legs healthy and free of complications for as long as possible.

There may also be funding available to high-risk diabetic patients if they live within the Auckland District Health Board and their doctors surgery is aligned with ProCare.

Skin and Nail Care

We also offer comprehensive skin and nail care appointments to take good care of your feet and minimise the risk of complications arising from self-care, especially where sensation may be altered or impaired. We always have plenty of tips up our sleeve for keeping you healthy and happy on your feet, as well as a number of devices (where needed) to keep you more comfortable and reducing your risk of injury.
