Access from EThOS:
Foot complications in diabetes are common, complex and costly. Following development of neuropathy, people with diabetes may, secondary to repetitive stress develop a wound much in the way someone would normally develop a hole in a shoe or stocking. It is this wound (diabetic foot ulcer) that frequently becomes infected, leading to loss of limb.
