About Diabetes & the Diabetic Foot

Diabetes is a highly prevalent condition globally. It is defined as a metabolic disorder, and there are two main types. Type 1 is an autoimmune disease mostly found in children where the body’s immune system destroys the insulin-producing pancreatic beta-cells. It is found in 5 to 10 percent of patients with Diabetes. Type 2 accounts for the remaining 90 to 95 percent, frequently found in people over age 45. It’s associated with the physical inactivity of adolescents and the sugar-rich diets commonly adopted today.

Foot Conditions associated with Diabetes include:

  • Peripheral Sensory Neuropathy

Nerve damage in the feet

  • Peripheral Vascular Disease & Peripheral Arterial Disease

Plaque build-up in the arteries reducing blood flow and the ability to heal

  • Charcot Foot

Structural damage caused by a lack of sensation and bone weakness. The arches are lost, and the foot may become boat shaped./p>

  • Diabetic Foot Ulcer

A sore developed when damaged skin goes unnoticed due to loss of sensation
