Diabetic foot syndrome is a foot wound caused by the combination of nerve ending damage, decreased sensory loss and circulatory disorder.

Diabetic Foot Wounds

One of the most important factors affecting the formation of wounds is physical trauma. These traumas, which can be counted as penetrating the foot with a sharp object, scratching the foot, hitting and squeezing the shoes, pave the way for the possibility of foot wounds. Neglected and untreated wounds are progressive and can cause gangrene. As a result of gangrene, the patient may lose fingers or feet.
According to the IDF International Diabetes Federation, every 20 seconds a person in the world loses a foot or part of his foot due to a diabetic foot injury. It should not be forgotten that; There is a risk of “diabetic foot” in almost every diabetic patient. The risk is greater for people with type 2 diabetes.

  • Daily check of sole of foot with mirror
  • Daily foot cleaning with lukewarm water
  • Regular moisturizing of the skin
