The truth about diabetic amputation

You have diabetes.

The truth about diabetic amputationYou’ve made changes.

You exercise more.

You monitory your glucose.

And yet your doctor keeps asking, “Are you taking care of your feet?”

There’s a reason for that!

The CDC estimates that approximately 23.6 million Americans have diabetes.

Diabetes often leads to nerve damage and poor circulation, reducing the ability for the body to heal.

This is particularly noticeable in limbs, especially the feet.

This damage also leads to an inability to feel an injury to begin with, leading to damage so severe that the limb must be amputated.

And over half of the amputations in the US are related to diabetes and diabetic complications.
