The Consequences of the Diabetic Foot
Two attendance options:
DMU faculty, staff, students, residents, and the medical community.

Diabetes mellitus is an increasingly common medical condition where the body doesn't make insulin or use it well, causing blood sugar to rise. The National Diabetes Statistics Report (2022) estimates that 37.3 million people in the United States have diabetes (11.3% of the population). 8.5 million of those people are undiagnosed. Foot problems are common in people with diabetes, as high blood sugar damages the nerves and blood vessels in the feet. Collaborative clinical care is optimal for the early detection and treatment of foot problems in people with diabetes.
