Diabetic foot disease

from Contemporary Clinic

Diabetes is a chronic condition that is associated with many macrovascular and microvascular complications.

Every year, about 1 to 4 percent of people with diabetes develop a new foot ulcer. A foot ulcer is the initial event in more than 85 percent of amputations performed on those with diabetes. Although the rate of foot and leg amputation has greatly declined over the past two decades, increasing awareness is essential because diabetes is the leading cause of lower-limb amputations in the United States. more
