Studies have shown men have a certain reluctance in tackling health concerns, and much prefer to fix those pesky foot problems with the good ol’ band-aid approach. But for the one million plus Australians currently living with diabetes, over 300,000 of those either have diabetic foot disease risk factors (poor feeling or poor circulation in their feet) or actual diabetic foot disease (sores, infection or really poor circulation in their feet). It certainly makes you think about the large proportion of men adopting the 'ignore it and it will go away' approach, and how many diabetic foot related problems and complications could be prevented or avoided if feet were given the much needed attention they deserve. So the big question for all the Aussie blokes out there living with diabetes this Men's Health Week is...how well do you know your feet?

It's a big week, with the Australian Podiatry Conference starting in Adelaide today, and the 8th International Symposium on the Diabetic Foot about to kick off in the Netherlands. And with diabetic foot disease now found to cause a greater use of health and hospital services than all other common diseases, there couldn't be a better time to start a global push to end avoidable amputations within a generation.

Now if you don’t happen to be hanging around the Netherlands this week, the good news is we're bringing international superstars Fran Game, Larry Lavery and Jaap van Netten down under to the DFA 2019 Conference in September. So do yourself a favour, get yourself a registration and chat with the world’s best - all without the long international flight and jetlag! www.diabeticfootaustralia.org/conference-2019/
