Diabetic Feet

Hello im seeking some advice.

My partner has Type 1 Diabetes and suffers badly with sweaty feet. He has purple soloution from the GP to help harden his skin but his shoes, socks and even our carpet stinks of his feet.

Im writing to see if anybody has any advice for us to help with this problem. We have tried newspaper in his shoes at night and that does nothing!!

Charcoal insoles?


Hi CSmidge, my cousin had the same issue, but he managed to sort it out by following guidance from a specialist podiatrist. Please have a look at this information from NHS Choices. I hope it helps.
