Foot Care

Our in-house podiatrists can help you prevent a host of potential foot issues that people with diabetes are typically vulnerable to.

YOUR FEET SHOULD ALWAYS BE ABLE TO LEAD YOU WHERE YOUR HEART WANTS TO GO.

People living with diabetes are more vulnerable to develop feet issues as diabetes can reduce blood circulation and damage the nerves to the feet.

Diabetes West has in-house podiatrists or chiropodists to help you address, treat and prevent such foot issues.

A podiatrist is just a fancy word for a foot doctor who specialises in the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower part of the leg.

At the centre of it all lays a quote from Thích Nhất Hạnh, Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist that speaks to us: ‘walk as if your feet are kissing the earth.’

We believe that everyone deserves to do exactly that. And that you should be able to walk wherever your heart wants to go.
