The Cost of a Diabetic Foot Ulcer

Diabetic foot ulcers can lead to months in a walking boot, and even toe or partial foot amputation. Ulcers, which often start out as calluses or redness, can go from non-existent to debilitating in a very short time. They’re especially common in people with reduced sensation in their feed, including those diabetic neuropathy. Without adequate protection of the amputation site, people who have already had toes amputated are at risk of need further amputations.

Diabetic foot ulcers can reduce mobility and quality of life. A diabetic foot ulcer can take months — or even years — to heal. During those months, someone with a diabetic foot ulcers is often in walking boot or cast. Even after an amputation, the amputate site is at risk for skin breakdown and ulceration.
