Diabetic Foot Care


Poorly controlled blood sugar level can have the following effects in your feet:

  • Hardening of the arteries: decreased arterial blood flow.

  • Decreased arterial blood flow: poor skin and nail integrity, slow wound healing, higher risk of ulcerations, higher risk of toe or foot amputations.

  • Damages to the nerves:  decrease or loss of protective skin sensation, higher risk of ulcerations, decreased or loss of proprioception and balance, nerve symptoms (numbness, burning sensation, poorly described sensation/ discomfort or pain etc.).

  • Increased risk of infection with skin cuts or abrasion.

  • Increased risk of lower limb amputation.


The podiatrist at Living Life Sports Medicine provides diabetic foot assessments and education bi-annually for client's with diabetes:

  • Arterial flow assessment with a doppler ultrasound machine.

  • Nerve assessment for protective skin sensation with a 10g Monofilament.

  • General foot health assessments.
