A medical podiatrist’s work includes the treatment of corns, hyperkeratosis, and various types of deformation and disease of the nails.
Foot care is particularly important for people with diabetes, to detect any pathological changes or symptoms in the feet and to introduce appropriate measures. General and specific advice naturally completes the service.
If you have a medical prescription, some health insurance companies will cover part of the cost of medical podiatry for people with diabetes. However, the services offered are open to everyone.
