Description

Good management of diabetes can reduce the risk of complications of the disease. When not well managed, diabetes is associated with the complications of heart disease, stroke, blindness, kidney disease and amputations. Diabetes can reduce the blood supply to the feet and cause a loss of feeling. As a result, foot injuries do not heal well and the person may not realise that their foot is sore or injured. Damage to the foot may lead to the development of foot ulcers, which if left untreated may result in amputation of the limb. Preventive care is a priority, but when complications occur the next step is to halt progression. Therefore, effective foot care and timely treatment of foot ulcers are important in preserving foot function and mobility, and preventing amputation in adults with diabetes.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
1. Describe the precursors for foot ulceration and how prevention and management of ulcers can prevent amputation and death.

2. Recognise risk factors that lead to the two main causes of foot ulceration.

3. Identify the signs and symptoms of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and neuropathy.

4. Discuss the management of foot ulceration.
