“People who have diabetes can develop foot ulcers, especially senior citizens. Those who are on diabetic medication are at higher risk of developing a foot ulcer as well as other problems involving the kidney, eye and heart. Being overweight and consuming alcohol and tobacco also play a role in the development of foot ulcers. We must give importance to our foot hygiene and keep our feet clean at all times, as much as we give importance to our face,” said Dr. K. Supramaniam.
Poliklinik WE CARE is located at 6, Jalan Niaga Jelapang 1, Halaman Niaga Jelapang, Ipoh.
