Diabetic Foot Assessment

Diabetic Foot Assessment

Diabetes can lead to various complications, including neuropathy (nerve damage) and reduced blood flow to the extremities, elevating the risk of foot-related problems. A comprehensive diabetic foot assessment is paramount in the early identification of issues and the prevention of more severe complications such as ulcers and amputations.

Our diabetic foot assessment is a meticulous evaluation conducted by our skilled healthcare professionals, specifically tailored for individuals with diabetes. This assessment comprises several essential components to ensure the utmost foot health:

  • Medical History: Our assessment begins by reviewing your diabetes status and relevant medical history, allowing us to understand your unique needs.
  • Neurological Assessment: We conduct tests to evaluate sensation and muscle function in your feet, crucial for identifying nerve-related concerns.
  • Vascular Assessment: Our professionals check blood flow and skin temperature, assessing circulation to safeguard against complications.
  • Skin and Nail Examination: Thoroughly inspecting your feet for any abnormalities or lesions, we aim to detect potential issues promptly.
  • Foot Deformities: Assessing structural integrity and gait ensures early intervention if any deformities are present.
  • Footwear Evaluation: We ensure that you have proper footwear, which plays a significant role in maintaining foot health.
  • Wound Assessment: An examination is conducted to identify wounds or ulcers, which may require immediate attention.
  • Patient Education: Equally important, we provide comprehensive guidance on foot care and glycemic control, empowering you to actively manage your condition.
  • Follow-up and Referrals: We schedule future visits to monitor your progress and, when necessary, facilitate specialist referrals to address any specific concerns.
