LEADING SOURCE OF AMPUTATION

Nerve disease triggered by type-2 diabetes is the primary reason for amputation of feet, toes, legs, hands amongst diabetes sufferers. Jointly, the disorders which cause these amputations are called Diabetic Neuropathies. Foot issues are one of the most frequent reasons for hospitalization of patients with type-2 diabetes. It is regrettable how many diabetes-linked hospital stays and amputations could have been prevented with better management of diabetes.

50% OF AMPUTATIONS ARE AVOIDABLE

The earlier that action is taken to maximize insulin sensitivity, the greater the chance is of avoiding the need for amputation. Unfortunately, too many individuals receive a late diagnosis of diabetes and need to undergo amputations. The majority of all lower limb amputations in the USA occur in individuals with diabetes– 86k amputations per year at last count. Experts estimate that nearly 50% of the amputations caused by neuropathy might have been prevented.
