Abstract: The rate of limbs lost from diabetes is 28 times greater than those without diabetes. Yet the American Diabetes Association estimates that 85 % of limb loss is preventable. Management of diabetic foot requires a multi system approach that addresses optimal wound care which includes appropriate antibiotic, proper wound cleansing, debridement of any callus and necrotic tissue, focused wound care with application of tissue regenerators and specially off - loading of pressure.
