Type 2 diabetics at risk of eye-damaging glaucoma – symptoms
Annually, a healthcare professional should check the feet, eyes, blood pressure, cholesterol, and kidneys of a diabetic.
The doctor or diabetes nurse will check “if you’ve lost any feeling in your feet, and for ulcers and infections”.
The feet can also be checked over by a professionally accredited podiatrist.
“Speak to your GP immediately if you have cuts, bruises or numbness in your feet,” the NHS says.
