The factors which increase the risk of developing diabetic foot complications in diabetics

This study examined whether various factors increase the risk of diabetics developing diabetic foot complications.

Chronic high blood glucose (sugar) levels in patients with diabetes can result in damage to small blood vessels, leading to various vascular complications. Damage to small blood vessels in the foot can lead to a diabetic foot (lack of blood supply to foot). This can lead to various complications such as ulceration (sores on the skin), gangrene (death of tissue) and amputation (removal of foot). Certain factors such as age and duration of diabetes can increase the risk of patients developing diabetic foot complications. Identifying the factors which may increase the risk of diabetic foot complications can allow patients to be identified early in order to prevent this from occurring.
