Diabetic Foot Ulcer Prevention and Care

Patient education on foot hygiene, nail care, and suitable footwear is critical in lowering the chance of an injury that can result in ulcer formation. Following a systematic diagnostic and categorization routine can help enhance communication between family physicians and diabetes subspecialists, as well as ease proper management of complications. This collaborative strategy could eventually lead to a reduction in diabetes-related lower extremity amputations.

Regularly inspecting the diabetic foot is one of the simplest, most cost-efficient, and most successful ways to prevent foot problems. Recognizing the most prevalent risk factors for limb loss is essential for proper diabetic foot care. Many of these risk factors can be recognized by looking at certain features of the patient’s medical history and performing a quick but thorough examination of the foot.
