If you have diabetes and lose some feeling in your feet, you may not feel that you’ve been hurt. That could mean it’s not treated quickly enough which could lead to serious infections or ulcers. In the worst cases, it leads to amputation. Maybe you know that you have less sensation in some parts of your feet? In this case, you need to check your feet every day by looking over them.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions which impact on us currently being able to offer a foot examination please complete a ‘Touch the Toes Test’ which is a quick and easy way to assess sensitivity in your feet, and can be done in the comfort of your own home, with the help of a family member or carer to perform the test. Please view the Diabetes UK documetnt for instructions: Diabetes UK:Touch the toes test.
