Foot Care for People with Diabetes

What keeps your feet healthy

To help keep your feet healthy, you need to control your blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels. Decide with your healthcare provider what levels you should aim for. It might help to write down results. You can make your own table to show your lab work and results over time. You can also access your lab work through My Health Records. Here’s an example you could use:

Indicator

Present Level

Target Level

Blood sugar or A1C

  

Blood pressure

  

Cholesterol

  

Date for foot exam next year or sooner if required: ___________

You might find it useful to track your visits with doctors and other healthcare providers. You can print the document My healthcare and foot care visits (PDF), fill it out, and keep it for your records.
