As a teacher you used to be up on your feet all day, but since your diagnosis of diabetes, you have dealt with painful swelling in your ankles and feet. You come home, sit down, and spend an hour waiting for the numbness and tingling to subside. With Diabetes, foot care is particularly crucial because poor circulation and sensation can contribute to chronic foot and leg complications.
Your general practitioner therefore suggested that you consult with a podiatrist at Shepparton Foot Clinic to have your foot health assessed and to see if custom orthotics would help your pain.
