Diabetes


Tall Tree is excited to offer services for individuals with Diabetes.

Tall Tree is a resource centre for individuals diagnosed with Diabetes. We perform assessment and treatment services to put you in control of this condition.

A major complication of diabetes is the increased likelihood of developing a foot or lower leg ulcer. Tall Tree has trained therapists to assess your risk for developing an ulcer, and to perform the annual foot inspections necessary to minimize the risk.

As part of a foot assessment, we provide education around footwear, self-care, exercise, and nutrition to improve your condition.
