Diabetic Foot Ulcer Study

Diabetic Foot Ulcer Study

A diabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that occurs in approximately 15 percent of patients with diabetes and is commonly located on the bottom of the foot.
The sore receives little care and occasionally becomes infected. The infection can spread to the bone (nearly all of which has a blood supply), creating a life-threatening problem. If left without care, six in every 10 people with a foot ulcer will die. In the united states alone, nearly half a million people suffer from foot ulcers and there are more than 15 million prescriptions for antibiotics written each year to treat such infections.
