Self-care of your feet and legs is always important but in people with Diabetes this is absolutely crucial.
The key is to establish a daily routine.
1. Clean and moisturise your feet.
2. Use a mirror or willing family member to check for any cuts, blisters or ingrowing nails and clean and dress these immediately.
3. Wear socks inside out so seams do not rub.
4. Always wear well-fitting footwear and never go barefoot or just in sock soles.
