Every 30 seconds a leg is lost to diabetes somewhere in the world. The development of foot problems is not an inevitable consequence of having diabetes. Indeed, most foot lesions are preventable. However, recent statistics are somewhat depressing: approximately a quarter of all people with diabetes worldwide at some point during their lifetime will develop sores or breaks (ulcers) in the skin of their feet. Moreover, as the number of people with diabetes rises worldwide, there can be little doubt that the burden of diabetes-related foot problems will increase in future years, particularly given that at least one in 10 people at the time of diagnosis of type 2 diabetes has risk factors for foot damage. The average cost for primary healing in the USA has been estimated to be between US$7,000 and US$10,000. The direct cost of an amputation associated with the diabetic foot is estimated to be between US$30,000 and US$60,000. The estimated cost for three years of subsequent care ranges from US$43,000 to US$63,000 — mainly due to the increased need for home care and social services. The corresponding cost for individuals with primary care has been estimated to be just over US$16,000 to nearly US$27,000. In addition to these costs, there are indirect costs due to loss of productivity to consider. If cost estimates are broadened to include the costs to the individual and loss of quality of life, then the estimated cost of the diabetic foot in the USA is some US$4 billion a year.

Good news is that up to 85% of diabetic foot amputations can be prevented with well-organized diabetic foot care, good diabetes control, education and well-informed self care.

  1. your video is really helpful. I am going to make sure my relative sees it,
    as he does not believe that his diabetes could lead to this.

  2. Hi Doctor, Very informative video on the diabetics foot health especially
    in Indian Subcontinent. Podiatry service in this region will highly benefit
    all population. Podiatrists are only medical specialist exclusively trained
    on lower limb and the foot. S M (Raja) Podiatrist

  4. Damn I’m only 22 and I already have darker skin on my feet, my mom has
    ulcers but she said she never noticed them at such young age. And a little
    tip for anyone who bodybuilds and has this crap.. stay away from any supp
    that has nicotinic acid (or niacin), I took one the other day and after
    couple hours I had red patched on my feet, and I don’t think they’ll go
    away.. so beware.

  5. I don’t understand what causes diabetes. Is it too much sugar? or something
    to do with insulin when we eat too much food at the same time and very
    fast?

  6. This is a very informative video. Thank you! Both my parents suffered from
    diabetes and passed away due to this killer illness. I now want to educate
    innocent people out there on diabetes.
