Multidisciplinary diabetic care, especially preventive foot care has been accepted as an effective approach to reduce complications and cost of treatment in diabetic patient. Peripheral neuropathy is one of the severe complications in diabetic patients and associated with severe morbidity including diabetic foot ulcers, infection, and amputation. The neuropathic ulceration can be reduced by screening examination at the first outpatient visit and yearly thereafter. Patient who is at risk of neuropathic ulceration must receive appropriate foot care education and treatment of foot problems in order to prevent future ulceration, infection, or amputation.
