Living with diabetes means living with an increased risk of foot problems. FootSmart gives you the skills and knowledge to create a care routine that will help avoid future foot problems. It’s estimated that 15% of people with diabetes will develop a foot ulcer in their lifetime, this is why good foot care is so important. The good news is, we are here to help you put your best foot forward.
FootSmart covers:
  • How high blood glucose levels can damage your feet
  • The importance of a daily foot care routine and what to look for
  • How to select the right shoe (and sock) for the job
  • How to manage an injury or infection and when to seek medical attention
  • The importance of finding a podiatrist and having regular foot checks.

By the end of this program, you will have the confidence to make the best decisions on how to take care of your feet.
