Diabetic foot assessment involves checking circulation and sensation of feet, footwear assessment and education.

How diabetes can affect your feet

Diabetes can lead to nerve damage and a reduced blood supply to your feet. Nerve damage can cause loss of sensation in the feet. Nerve damage increases the risk of accidental injury due to loss of feeling in your feet. This could then lead to a wound, and possibly infection.

If you have decreased blood supply to the feet, injuries or wounds will take longer to heal. People with diabetes are at higher risk of infection following an injury due to poor circulation.
