Prevention programs for foot ulcers, amputations needed in patients with diabetes
from Endocrine Today
Programs for the prevention of foot ulcers and amputations in patients with type two diabetes are lacking, and researchers suggest that appropriate prevention services may significantly improve the high rate of amputation in this patient population. Researchers pooled data from electronic medical records to identify 150 patients on dialysis and 150 patients with a previous foot ulceration or amputation between 2000 and 2006.
