Funded Diabetic Foot Checks
Diabetes can affect anyone, regardless of their age, weight, gender or race. Diabetes is becoming a major challenge for everyone and foot complications are one of the most common complications associated with this condition. High levels of sugar (Glucose) in your blood over a long period of time increases your risk of serious damage to the nerves and blood vessels to the lower leg and foot.
Podiatry plays a significant role in the management of the diabetic foot and we are contracted by Waitemata PHOs, to provide a fully funded (no charge) diabetic foot check for people living with diabetes. Please note only contracted podiatrists can offer this free service.
If you have any questions, or would like further information on how to access this free service, please don't hesitate to contact us.
