Mon 13th May - Monthly Meeting - Tom Dickie - Consultant Podiatrist

 Monday 13th May - Tom Dickie

We were delighted to welcome Tom Dickie coming to host our session for the first hour: Tom is the consultant podiatrist at the Manny Cussins Centre at St James Hospital and has a wealth of knowledge of all things limb and foot related.
Looking after our feet is an incredibly crucial aspect of managing our own health and is one of the main reasons we all need to monitor our blood sugar levels. Long term complications of raised blood sugars could lead to difficulties with or feet, as well as other areas. Tom updated us on latest information and specific research, with which he has been involved for at least a couple of years, that has focussed on a particular type of boot.
Tom is an engaging speaker who has been involved in diabetic care at St James for many years.
