Welcome to the Diabetic Foot Page. These pages are designed to assist health care professionals who look after the foot problems of diabetic patients.

The diabetic is 15 times more likely to have an amputation than a non-diabetic. Diabetic foot problems are one of the commonest causes of admission to hospital for diabetic sufferers.

The St. Vincent Declaration has exhorted all of us to try to reduce the numbers of amputations by 50% within 5 years.

The site currently has foot care advice leaflets in 31 languages and various forms available for download in Adobe Acrobat format.
