Diabetic foot is one of the most significant and devastating complications of diabetes, and is defined as a foot affected by ulceration that is associated with neuropathy and/or peripheral arterial disease of the lower limb in a patient with diabetes.
How to Identify?
Due to the peripheral nerve dysfunction (due to high blood sugar levels) associated with diabetes , patients have a reduced ability to feel pain. This means that minor injuries may remain undiscovered for a long while.
Such people has high risk of having diabetic foot and should start taking preventive measures immediately.
Why not ignore it?
Approximately 5-15% of diabetic foot patients with ulcers will require an amputation which is a huge number. Proper foot care and medical check ups are compulsory to avoid this.
