Many foot problems in diabetes can be prevented and often the patients are misdiagnosed, or inappropriately referred or treated. This title will be of immense use to the audience as work of reference.

Diabetes mellitus is the lack of insulin leading to uncontrolled carbohydrate metabolism, the breakdown of starches and sugars into smaller units that can be used by the body for energy. Foot ulcers occur in about 15% of diabetic patients in their lifetime and hospital admissions due to foot ulcers are very common. Foot problems mostly occur when there is nerve damage in the feet or when there is poor blood flow.
* Contains colour photos and pictures
* Examples for identification of the patients at risk for foot ulceration
* Prompt diagnosis and treatment.
