Don’t Be Another Statistic — Keep Your Feet Where They Belong!

Having diabetes means you have to take extra-special care of your feet. People with diabetes are thirty more times likely to have lower-limb amputations — mainly because many people with diabetes also have peripheral arterial disease, and can more easily develop neuropathy.

That’s why Diabetes UK is putting feet first! (And we at The Diabetes Site are putting our feet forward too!)

Learn more about how to keep your feet in check, by taking a look at the video below. As always, don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments and share your tips and tricks for keeping your feet safe!

While you’re taking care of your feet or those of your loved one, you can help others who have already developed leg and foot ulcers may not have the insurance coverage to get the healthcare they need!
