Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 17th 2009
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 18, 2009 29 IABETES HAS INCREASED 300 PER CENT IN TH PAST 10 YEARS. About 1.4 million Australian have diabetes and half still undiagnosed. People with diabetes are at greater risk of developing foot problems, as they are prone to experiencing reduced blood circulation and nerve degeneration in their feet and legs. This decreases a diabetic's ability to fight infection and also contributes to the reduction in their capacity to heal wounds. To maintain healthy feet, podiatrists TKylie McCulloch and Nicole Jamieson from Rhodes Podiatry suggest people: Ensure your blood sugar levels are within the range advised for you. Encourage good blood circulation by walking regularly. Choose footwear that is appropriate for your activity. Check your shoes regularly for any excess wear on the outside or for any rough spots within the lining. Blisters, cuts and scratches should be cleansed with saline solution or antiseptic. Cover the wound with a sterile dressing and seek the advice from your podiatrist or doctor as soon as possible. Self-prescribed over-the-counter products such as corn cures or corn pads can do more damage, as they are caustic-based. Picking at or aggravating corns and calluses can also cause infection. See your podiatrist for the treatment of corns or calluses. Inspect your feet daily for any sign of redness, swelling or pain. If you detect anything unusual seek the opinion of your podiatrist as soon as possible. Regular visual foot checks are vital for foot health. Diabetes Australia recommends people with diabetes should visit a podiatrist at least once every 12 months. Your podiatrist not only treats Ydiabetes-related foot problems, but they provide management plans, enabling you to take better control of your diabetes and your feet. Let the team at Rhodes Podiatry assist you with all your foot care needs. Call today to book an appointment on 8732 8888. Evenings and Saturday appointments are available.
