Diabetic foot ulceration, which can result in amputations of the lower extremities and death, is a major complication for people with diabetes mellitus. Comprehensive foot care programs based on the International Consensus on the Diabetic Foot 2007, including regular inspections and examination of the foot at risk, identification of the foot at risk, education of patient, family and healthcare provider, recommendations of appropriate footwear, and treatment of non-ulcerative pathologies, can reduce the occurrence of foot lesions in up to 50% of patients. The objective of this overview is to discuss how to prevent diabetic foot, and educate patients with diabetic foot.
Key Words: Amputation, Comprehensive foot care program, Diabetic foot ulceration
