Berkshire Foot Care Service (Podiatry)

It’s especially important to look after your feet if you have diabetes. Diabetes can reduce the blood supply to your feet and cause a loss of feeling. This can mean foot injuries do not heal well, and you may not notice if your foot is sore or injured.

We can help you treat and manage conditions and diseases that effect your foot and lower limbs, helping you stay mobile and prevent any future complications.

Newly Diagnosed with Diabetes

When newly diagnosed with diabetes, most people find themselves in a state of shock. However, being diagnosed with diabetes doesn’t prevent you from leading a ‘normal’ life.
