Sydney podiatrist Dr. Abdul Habra warns diabetics to get regular foot examinations. Diabetics are often unaware of the risks they face due to neglect of their foot care. The significant rise in reported cases of diabetes is a disturbing trend, with Diabetes Australia reporting that 280 Australians develop diabetes every day. They also report that over 100,000 Australians have developed diabetes in the past year, with diabetes being the fastest growing chronic condition in Australia.

Habra said, “The need for regular foot examinations by diabetics cannot be underestimated. In many cases, diabetics have little feeling in their feet and, for their own safety, it is important for them to receive professional foot care by a podiatrist on a regular basis.”
