Foot Care by a Health Care Professional is Especially Important for if you have Diabetes or Poor Circulation

Foot sores that are not healing  are an indication , red flag or warning sign for diabetes. Diabetes can limit  feeling or sensation in the feet. Diabetes also causes circulation problems and for normal wounds or sores  healing is impaired. Even a simple blister can lead into a serious sore or wound.  These sores or wounds are prone to infection which can become a serious issue for the Diabetic. Sores that don't heal can also be caused by poor circulation from Diabetes but also from other conditions for example peripheral artery disease.

Diabetes affects more then 3 million Canadians and is the most frequent cause of non-traumatic lower limb amputations. Many amputations can be prevented through education and regular evaluation of the feet by a health care professional. In the one-on-one sessions, The Foot Nurse gives the client some basic, yet essential information about foot care for the diabetic.

Good foot health is vital to mobility, independence, and maintaining and enjoying an active lifestyle.
