Mortality(Death) due to Diabetic Foot Problems and Amputations

Mortality after Diabetic Foot Amputation

Overall Life Expectancy in patients with Diabetic Foot Syndrome is reduced by 10 years.

After any major leg amputation, 50% of such patients die within 2 years.

Various studies show that the risk of death after a foot ulcer is increased by 3-4 times as compared to non diabetic people.

So aggressive management of the foot ulcer is important for patient well being and longevity.

Loss of even a small part of the foot, changes the pressure distribution in the foot, leaving the person prone to future ulcerations and amputations with attendant complications.
