People with diabetes are at risk for a variety of foot-related health concerns.

  • 25% of people with diabetes will develop a foot ulcer in their lifetime.
  • 50% of those foot ulcers will get infected and up to 15% of those will require amputation.
  • Diabetes is the leading cause of lower extremity amputation accounting for over 60% of these amputations.
  • Every 30 seconds a leg is lost from a medical complication due to diabetes.
If left untreated, these relatively minor foot problems can develop into serious health complications, eventually leading to amputation of the foot or leg. Foot care is key.
