Diabetic Foot Care- limb loss prevention

An ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure ...was never as true as for diabetic feet. To prevent foot problems before they start, every diabetic should see a foot specialist as soon as they are diagnosed. After an initial assessment, a baseline of information is established. We will perform a foot and lower leg examination; neurlogical; vascular; dermatalogical and muscular/skeletal. We will teach you how diabetes affects your feet, find out whether you are likely to have serious foot problems, and setup a foot care program for you.

Every 20 seconds a lower limb is lost somewhere in the world as a consequence of diabetes.”-DFCon update 2018.

We provide comprehensive foot examination, risk assessment, health teaching and monitoring changes. We consult directly with the family physicians in order to provide the best follow up care possible. Routine follow up appointments are recommended in order to avoid foot complication.

The Benefits of Foot Care

in the Elderly

Staying Active:

Foot problems quickly reduce mobility. If it’s painful to walk, the elderly person will walk less. This reduces independence, limits exercise and risks the development of blood clots.

Fall Prevention:

Healthy feet improve balance thereby reducing the risk of falls. Corns, calluses and ingrown toenails can cause severe pain and imbalance. Treating these issues will eliminate the unnecessary pain and will reduce the risk of falls.

Early Warning Signs of Systemic Diseases:

Feet can actually help alert you to health problems at an early stage. Problems such as arthritis, poor circulation, diabetes and many other illnesses can first show signs in the feet and toenails.

Disease Prevention:

Nail fungus and nail thickening is very common in the elderly. Fungal infection of the nail can cause breakage in the nail or loss of the nail. Thick toenails can cause pressure on the underlying skin and can lead to pain, nail detachment and ulcerations. Athletes foot, psoriasis and other skin problems are also very common in the elderly and can be easily treated when recognized early.

"Krisztine worked with my clinic as a Footcare nurse providing care for our patients. I have worked with Chiropodists, Podiatrists and other Footcare nurses and I have never seen anyone compare to the level of skill she has working with difficult conditions. Krisztine has fantastic bedside manner and takes her time to address all aspects of the foot and does not just focus on one specific area. I trust Krisztine fully with the care of my high-risk and medically complicated patients. Erin K -C.Ped. 2019
