The Diabetic Foot

The diabetic foot is one of the most serious secondary diseases of Diabetes Mellitus.

An insufficient treatment of the diabetic foot syndrome can lead to amputations which could have been avoided by a timely and professional treatment. The risk of an amputation is 40 times higher in diabetics than in non-diabetics.

Only specialists trained in the treatment of the diabetic foot syndrome should undertake such therapy, since only they and their specially trained staff will ensure a successful treatment.

The best preventive measures against the diabetic foot are a constantly stable blood-sugar level and regular medical check-ups by a specialist. The risk of contracting a diabetic foot syndrome increases with the duration of diabetes and an unstable blood-sugar level.
