Study shows amputations on the rise due to diabetes and poor circulation
from CTV News
After years of improvements in diabetes management, a new study shows a recent upswing in the number of lower limb amputations. The study, which was published recently in the
Canadian Medical Journal
, examined data from more than 20,000 people who underwent amputations in Ontario between 2005 and 2016. While there was an initial decrease in amputations leading up to 2010, by 2016, that decline had reversed in people ages 40 and up.
