Why is Diabetic Foot Care Important?

Almost everyone will know someone with diabetes. As of 2017, more than 13% of Singapore’s population has been living with diabetes. What may not be known is how important it is for a diabetic person to take care of the feet, and the consequences of neglecting them.

 

Common diabetic foot problems include:

  1. Peripheral neuropathy
  2. Peripheral vascular disease
  3. Bone and joint deformity
  4. Non-healing wounds/ ulcers, leading to amputation
