Orthoses for Patients with Diabetes

The number of people afflicted by diabetes is ever-increasing in Québec. Diabetes has well-known repercussions on many parts of the body, including feet. Diabetes affects blood flow, sensations, immunities, and feet. It accounts for more than 80% of non-traumatic amputations. All diabetic patients should therefore pay special attention to the health of their feet.

Clinique podiatrique de l’Estrie podiatrists are very experienced in foot care for diabetic patients. They can:

  • Evaluate the vascular and neurological health of feet;
  • Verify whether patients’ shoes are appropriate and provide advice accordingly;
  • Provide advice with regards to prevention, hygiene, and personal care;
  • Treat foot conditions and complex wounds;
  • Prescribe the wear of orthoses and diabetic walking boots.

It is worth mentioning that wearing orthoses is an important aspect of treating the diabetic foot.
