The Diabetic Footcare Blackbook. "The Diabetic Footcare Bible". Written by Dominic Hough.

It is well known that Diabetes can affect your feet very easily and in a whole range of uncomfortable ways.

Dominic creates a book that answers one specific question.

diabetic complications

How can someone put green and blue onto a picture? :)

If no one has ever checked your feet or explained why your diabetic feet are so important then you have to read this book- and then use the advice to start asking questions.

Questions which could actually save you from loosing your feet.

"If left untreated, these small wounds can easily become infected, lead to gangrene, and may eventually require amputation of the affected area"- Canadian Diabetes Association.

What we are trying to do is to prevent. To prevent a problem from occurring. It is very easy to prevent something being removed then it is to actually try to heal something, keep it healed and then try to prevent the issue from coming back.

Did you know...

  • Diabetes reduces your immunity just a tiny little bit.
  • It can increase how long it takes for you to heal.
  • It can also reduce your circulation and the feeling to your feet.

The unfortunate thing is, we have focused on the wrong thing.

  • We have tried to cure a problem when it exists. If a Diabetic gets a cut we pounce on healing that wound rather than trying to figure out why it was caused in the first place.
  • Terminology is often confusing to the patient (Boarderline diabetic?).
  • The Doctor states everything is "fine" without reasoning or explaining just what is fine?
  • Expensive products which Diabetic patients are told to get are often poor: Diabetic socks are sometimes black in colour, which is not the best colour to choose.

The Diabetic Footcare Black Book has been designed to laser focus on:

How do you reduce your diabetic footcare risk (every diabetic has a risk)?

and

What do you actually do when you do get a problem?

Focusing on more than 10 years of clinical footcare experience, Dominic takes you hand in hand, reducing medical jargon, using real world examples and exploring over 25 ways to reduce your Diabetic Footcare Risk.

"The book is fantastic. Useful, direct and personable." Tom Fox, Podiatrist. The Nantwich Clinic

"I really like it!!!. It’s relevant and informative without going into ridiculous detail"

Alistair Sharp, Podiatrist. Walsall NHS Trust. UK
