About The Event

A diabetic foot is a foot that exhibits any pathology that results directly from diabetes mellitus or

any long-term (or "chronic") complication of diabetes mellitus. Presence of several characteristic

diabetic foot pathologies such as infection, diabetic foot ulcer and neuropathic

osteoarthropathy is called diabetic foot syndrome.

Due to the peripheral nerve dysfunction associated with diabetes (diabetic neuropathy), patients

have a reduced ability to feel pain. This means that minor injuries may remain undiscovered for a

long while. People with diabetes are also at risk of developing a diabetic foot ulcer. Research

estimates that the lifetime incidence of foot ulcers within the diabetic community is around 15%

and may become as high as 25%. Uncontrolled diabetic foot may suffer from the very bad consequence

of amputation.

Attendees of this Diabetic Foot Management will learn the risk factors related to the development

of diabetic foot, how to diagnose diabetic foot, the latest medical management of diabetic foot

and the surgical management of diabetic foot.
