Our Topic of the Month discussion for July is 'Caring for your Feet'.
Problems with the feet are common in the general population, but they can have even more of an impact for people with long-term health conditions such as lupus.
Your feet take the weight of your whole body, so foot problems can quickly lead to discomfort and affect the way you walk. This can in turn cause knee, hip and back pain.
We want to hear your experiences of taking care of your feet. Do you wear particular insoles or shoes to help protect the structure of your feet? Do you have any treatments or therapies to keep your feet in good health? Do you see a podiatrist or other specialist?
We would like to hear all of your tips and experiences and we’ll compile them towards the end of the month for an article. Please share in the comments section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The article itself will be posted on the LUPUS UK Blog at
