Diabetes affects approximately 1 million people in the UK ..and more have it but are undiagnosed !

But do you know how important is to look after your feet when you’ve got diabetes ?

My very pregnant wife (who has gestational diabetes at the moment – this is a diabetes induced by her pregnancy- it should disappear after the baby is born ) spurred me to write something about diabetes !

Diabetics can ,due to the excess sugar in the blood , can damage the nerves in your feet and hands,can damage your eyes and can lead to minor infections becoming worse

This is why regular foot checks are important as a diabetic might not feel or see any small problems .

Chiropodists and Podiatrists are also trained to spot the early signs of Diabetes as well .
