Diabetes Foot Services in the Bayside Area
Diabetes is one of the leading causes of foot complications in the Australian healthcare system. Poorly managed diabetes can lead to reduced blood flow and sensation of the foot and lower limb, and if not managed appropriately can lead to a loss of sensation and reduced blood flow to the feet and further complications such as diabetic foot ulcers or amputation.
As such, establishing a line of communication with your podiatrist and attending a clinic for regular skin and nail care, foot health assessment and patient-centred management is important.
Our team understands the importance of regular Diabetic Foot Assessment, and the vital role a podiatrist plays in the overall healthcare team of a person living with diabetes (Type 1 & Type 2).
Our team will work in conjunction with your GP, Diabetes Nurse Educator and other Health Professionals to ensure the safe and effective management of your Diabetes, providing assessment, management, maintenance and education.
