If you're a diabetes sufferer, looking after your feet is incredibly important – it helps to keep your skin in good
condition and prevents injuries to your feet and damage to your skin. Just a few minutes each day can be enough to
help prevent serious problems.
1) Check your feet. You're looking for any changes from yesterday as well as the previous days and weeks.
2) Wash your feet with warm water and mild soap daily. Check with your hand or elbow that the water is not too hot.
3) Moisturise. Apart from in-between the toes.
