Diabetes was the subject of a recent free talk held at TFH for our local community. We joined forces with Mark Jones Eye Care to help keep our patients informed regarding care of feet and eyes if you have this condition. We were pleased to receive the following feedback when we asked what our audience felt was their biggest take home message:
- Take care of your feet and wash them daily.
- Look after your feet and pay attention to signs and symptoms. Have feet checked regularly.
- Regular checks can tell if something is changing.
- Check feet is a MUST.
- Reduce sugar intake.
- Keep your diabetes under good control and feet and eyes will be as healthy as possible.
- Take care of your eyes and feet.
We plan to hold another event in 2019.
