What is Diabetic Foot?

Diabetics are at a very high risk to develop ulcers and infections that lead to foot amputations. In fact, the risk for a diabetic to develop ulcers is as high as 25%, when compared to an average occurrence of ~2%. Most diabetics develop peripheral arterial disease (PAD) that reduces blood circulation to the feet. Moreover, diabetics develop nerve disease also called diabetic neuropathy thereby reducing sensation in the feet. This amplifies the problem as it make it easy for diabetics to develop ulcers and infections, which when left untreated for some time may lead to amputation.

Product Description

Vibration Perception Threshold (VPT) : Diabetic neuropathy (diabetic foot) is the most common cause for foot ulceration. The VPT test is considered as a gold standard for diagnosis of diabetic foot (peripheral neuropathy).

10-g monofilaments:Screening for loss of sensation with the 10-g monofilament is in widespread use across the world. Nylon monofilaments are built in a way that when a 10-g force is applied, it buckles. If the patient does not detect this pressure, it indicates loss of large-fiber nerve function indicating early symptoms.

Dermatological and Musculoskeletal assessment:Physical inspection for any presence of callus, fungal infections, ulceration besides foot deformities.

Reflex: Absence of ankle reflexes is associated with possibility of ulceration. Ankle reflexes are tested with a tendon hammer.

FAQs

Can neuropathy be cured?

No, once a person is affected by neuropathy it is possible to arrest the current situation but not reverse the situation.

What is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment?

Pain related to nerves can become stubborn and is hard to treat. It usually starts with a tingling that can develop into numbness and increased pain. However, diabetic neuropathy treatment incorporates methods to manage this pain:

  • Good control of sugar level will help in preventing the pain from getting worse.
  • Wearing the right footwear such as diabetes socks etc. can assist in managing the pain.
  • Over the counter medication such as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such aspirin or ibuprofen reduce inflammation thereby reducing pain.
  • If NSAIDs give you stomach irritation, another OTC drug to try out is Acetaminophen that relieves pain without reducing inflammation. However, taking more than recommended can cause liver damage.
