Foot Care

Diabetic foot is one of the most devastating chronic complications of diabetes and is the leading cause of lower limb amputation. Almost 75% of these amputations are preventable.Footcare in diabetes is must to avoid complications like recurrent injuries, ulcer, peripheral vascular disease and amputation. Routine foot examination for early detection of foot at risk and treatment of the foot problems which have already occurred is done at our centre. All this requires time and a comprehensive approach by a team comprising of diabetologist, surgeon, podiatrist, dietician, shoemaker and a diabetes educator/counselor. A comprehensive foot examination with monofilament, vibratip, tunning fork and digital biothesiometer along with counselling is the key in preventing diabetic foot. The Foot care clinic at Diabelife is fully equipped with facilities for early detection and diagnosis of diabetic foot complications.
