Podiatry & Diabetic Foot

What is Podiatry?

Podiatry is a branch of medicine dedicated to the study, diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle and lower extremity.

Who are Podiatrists?

Podiatrists are trained healthcare professionals who diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and lower limbs. They help in prevention and correction of various deformities of the foot making you more active and mobile. They can guide you on how to look after your feet and which type of shoe to wear. They can provide you with custom-made insoles, padding and arch support to relieve heel pain.

Who needs a Podiatric consultation?

Foot problems can commonly develop in people with diabetes and can get complicated if unnoticed. Patients with diabetes have impaired sweat secretion, reduced oil production and damaged nervous system (peripheral neuropathy) which leads to abnormal pressure on the skin, bones and joints of the foot which may lead to injuries while walking or doing daily activities. This results in the development of sores or wounds that are difficult to heal. Podiatrists play an important role and are essential professionals as a part of diabetes care. So if you are diabetic or have a family member who is diabetic you should go for a podiatry consultation.

You may want to see a podiatrist if you have painful feet, cracks or cuts in the feet, thickened or discoloured nails, warts, scaling and peeling on the soles. A podiatrist can also help in preventing, diagnosing and treating injuries related to various sports and exercise. Apart from these conditions, you might consider meeting a podiatrist to have the hard skin on your feet removed; to find out if you’re wearing the right shoes, or just to make sure that you’re taking good care of your feet.
