About diabetes and the diabetic foot

Diabetes is a highly prevalent disease throughout the world. It is defined as a metabolic disorder, and there are two main types. Type 1 is an autoimmune disease, occurring primarily in children, in which the body's immune system destroys insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells. It occurs in 5-10% of patients with diabetes. Type 2 accounts for the remaining 90 to 95 percent, and is frequently found in people older than 45 years. It is associated with the physical inactivity of adolescents and the diets rich in sugars that are adopted today.

Foot conditions associated with diabetes include:
