Foot problems and diabetes

The feet of someone with diabetes are at risk of damage when the blood supply in both large and small blood vessels is reduced. Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy) often results and problems to the structure of the foot can also occur – for example, clawed toes.

Reduced blood supply and nerve function can delay healing, increase the risk of infection, reduce feeling in the feet, and lead to ulcers and structural foot problems.

Look after your feet by:

  • seeing a podiatrist at least once a year. They will assess the health of your feet by checking the blood supply and nerve function and looking for changes in the structure of your feet
  • checking your feet every day (get someone to help you if you are unable to check them yourself). Look for cuts, blisters calluses, corns, tinea (especially between the toes) and any changes you notice. If treated early and without delay, you can help prevent complications occurring
  • using a moisturiser (such as sorbolene), especially if you have areas of dry, rough or cracked skin on your feet and heels – this can help keep your feet healthy
  • protecting your feet by wearing comfortable, supportive shoes that fit well.

Skin problems and diabetes

People with diabetes may experience very dry skin due to damage to the small blood vessels and nerves. A common problem for people with diabetes is very dry skin on the feet.

There are also other skin conditions related to diabetes. High blood glucose levels over time can affect the health of the skin. The skin acts as a barrier to protect our bodies from infection so it is important to keep the skin as healthy as possible. If the skin becomes dry, it can lead to cracks and possibly infections.

To reduce the risk of skin problems:

  • Keep your blood glucose and HbA1c within recommended ranges  to reduce the risk of skin infections.
  • Wear gloves when you use household cleaners and solvents.
  • Avoid very hot baths and showers.
  • Do not have your feet too close to heaters, especially if you have peripheral neuropathy, as you may not be able to feel the intensity of the heat.
  • Use a cream or lotion on your skin after bathing, preferably one that is not perfumed. Use non-scented soaps or soap alternatives.
  • If you notice you have a skin problem, see your doctor.

Teeth and gum problems and diabetes

People with poorly managed diabetes are at increased risk of tooth decay and gum infections. This is because the small blood vessels that help nourish your teeth and gums can become damaged. (Dental and gum infections can also lead to high blood glucose levels.) 

Not looking after your teeth and gums can cause the gums to become inflamed and loosen around your teeth. Poor oral care is also strongly linked with an increased risk of heart disease.

To reduce your risk of teeth and gum problems:

  • See your dentist regularly (six monthly) for a check-up. 
  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day (a soft toothbrush is generally recommended) and floss once a day. 
  • If you have dentures, make sure you brush your dentures and gums with a soft tooth brush.
