WHAT’S THE FOOT GOT TO DO WITH MY DIABETES?
An ounce of knowledge may save your leg from diabetes.
“For diabetic patients, the lifetime risk of having a foot ulcer and infection is about 20% to 25%. The average healing time for a diabetic foot ulcer is 100 days. A tremendous amount of time and money is spent treating diabetic foot ulcers. It has been reported that 40% of diabetic foot ulcers eventually require an amputation.
As a diabetic foot and ankle specialist over 30 years, I cannot emphasize enough, the importance of educating diabetic patients on how to recognize early signs and subtle changes that occur in their body that can lead to foot ulcers. With the right knowledge, they will know when to seek medical care well before foot ulcers and wounds happen.”
