What's Involved in Diabetic Foot Assessment?

A Diabetic Foot Assessment at Lidcombe Podiatry includes several key steps:

  1. Medical History Review: We start by reviewing your medical history, focusing on any diabetes-related complications and previous foot issues.
  2. Visual and Physical Examination: Our specialists examine your feet for any abnormalities or signs of complications, such as skin changes, infections or structural deformities.
  3. Sensation Testing: We conduct tests to check the sensation in your feet, identifying areas with reduced or absent feeling.
  4. Circulation Assessment: Blood flow to your feet is evaluated to detect any circulation problems, which are common in diabetes.
  5. Footwear Assessment: We assess your footwear to ensure it provides proper support and does not contribute to potential foot problems.
