Diabetes nurse organisation releases footcare leaflets
A leading diabetes specialist nurse organisation has published advisory leaflets about footcare.
TREND-UK has released Looking After your Feet with Diabetes in a bid to help drive down the number of people who suffer from the diabetes-related foot conditions, such has ulcers.
The footcare booklet has been developed because people with diabetes may not realise that poor blood glucose control can damage the nerves and blood vessels supplying the feet.
The document outlines how people can prevent foot complications, how to examine the feet properly and what to look out for, should an issue start to develop.
These latest leaflets join the rest of TREND-UK’s resources which are available for patients and nurses via the organisation’s website. To gain access users must create an account and log in.
