Abstract Diabetes is a common disease that is associated with numerous complications, including foot ulceration and amputation. In diabetic patients, the incidence of foot ulcers ranges from 1.0\% to 4.1\%, and the incidence of lower-extremity amputations ranges from 2.1 to 13.7 per 1000. Risk factors for developing foot ulcers and subsequent amputation include neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, and trauma. To reduce these complications, several preventive strategies have been devised, from reducing risk factors to improving treatment and management.
