Canadian Podiatrist, Dr. Axel Rohrmann states, "in a new survey of Canadians living with type 1 and type 2 diabetes conducted by Léger Marketing, sponsored by Eli Lilly Canada and being released in collaboration with the Canadian Diabetes Association, results indicate that while 9 in 10 Canadians with diabetes are aware they are at an increased risk of serious foot injuries, 4 in 10 admit to having their feet examined by a doctor less than once a year, only when something is wrong, and for some, never. Of equal concern is that 7 in 10 do not examine their feet for blisters, cuts, temperature differences, or other injuries on a daily basis, and less than 1 in 10 admit to never following a daily nail or foot care regimen.  Having the right information can enable people with diabetes to take action. When they know the right questions to ask their healthcare professional, they develop a better understanding of how to properly care for their feet as risks can be identified and precautions advised."

 

Dr. Axel Rohrmann, Canadian Podiatrist is co-chair of the Canadian Diabetes Association's Clinical Practice Guidelines Foot Care Tool Kit.
