The Diabetic Foot Clinic of Belgaum Diabetes Centre was commissioned by the World Diabetes Foundation, having been selected as one of 10 centres in Karnataka to be given this facility.
We conduct routine foot examinations where we check for Neuropathy (nerves getting affected).
This test helps to detect and provide a good understanding of loss of foot sensation in patients with diabetes.
This test helps to assess the reduced blood supply to the feet by the use of a hand help doppler.
Foot Clinic includes various procedures that are done to prevent high risk damage to the foot like callus or corn removal, nail clipping, wound dressing, deformities of the foot, infections and necrosis.
We have specially designed footwear for diabetic patients with deformities that helps redistribute the pressures, thereby preventing the formation of calluses and corns.
