Foot Conditions


Are you someone who is living with diabetes? If so, you know the potential complications it can bring, especially regarding your feet. High blood sugar levels over time can wreak havoc on your body, causing damage to tissues, blood vessels, nerves, and even sweat glands. As a result, you may find that you’re less sensitive to pain, particularly in your feet. This lack of sensitivity puts you at risk of not noticing wounds, leading to serious infections and, in extreme cases, even amputation.

But don’t worry because there’s a solution that can help you maintain healthy feet and prevent further complications. Welcome to the Brooklin Foot and Orthotic Clinic, your preferred choice for foot care services.

What can you do to take care of your feet
if you have diabetes?
Let’s go through some important do’s and don’ts:


  • Make exercise a regular part of your routine and strive for a healthy weight.
  • Keep your blood sugar levels in check to minimize the risk of complications.
  • Inspect your feet diligently daily, looking out for any wounds or abnormalities.
  • Pay attention to sores, blisters, or signs of infection, and seek
    professional help.
  • Ensure that your shoes fit properly and get fitted by a professional whenever you purchase new ones.
  • Wear thick and soft socks with your shoes to provide extra cushioning and protection.
  • Always wear shoes that fit well to prevent injuries and reduce the risk of developing foot problems.
  • Schedule regular visits to your chiropodist to receive the specialized care your feet deserve.


  • Walk around barefoot, even within the comfort of your own home. Protect your feet at all times.
  • Choose footwear such as high heels, sandals, or shoes with pointed toes that can cause discomfort or restrict blood flow.
  • Wear anything that fits too tightly around your legs, which can impede circulation.
  • Attempt to remove calluses, corns, or warts on your own. Leave these tasks to the professionals who can handle them safely and effectively.
  • Forget that we offer cold laser therapy, a cutting-edge treatment that can benefit certain foot conditions.
