Here’s a picture from this morning’s clinic – not a pretty sight but very apt because it’s World Diabetes Day today.
My patient presented with sensation loss due to suspected diabetes and had come in with a growth on his toe 2 weeks ago. Diabetics are 20x more likely to need an amputation and podiatry can really help:
Picture 1 – how it looked when he came in
Picture 2 – after 1st treatment same day
Picture 3 – 3 days later
Picture 4 – 1.5 weeks later
An amazing transformation, all healed before the referral to see the consultant in 1 week …
