Why does foot care matter?

Having high blood sugar levels over time can lead to several diabetes-related foot complications, including:

  • Neuropathy, or damage to the nerves of the feet, can lead to unusual sensations in the feet and loss of feeling
  • Skin changes, including dry skin that may crack or peel
  • Calluses, or areas of thickened and hardened skin
  • Poor circulation, can lead to poor/delayed healing
  • Open sores on the foot, can lead to hospitalization or amputation
  • Amputation, which is the loss or removal of a body part

Eligibility criteria for foot care:

  • Must have a primary health care provider
  • Must be a Mushkegowuk member
