PRIMARY CAUSE OF AMPUTATION IN DIABETICS

Type-2 diabetes-related nerve damage is the primary cause of amputations of feet, toes, legs, hands, and arms in those suffering from diabetes. These amputations are often due to conditions collectively known as Diabetic Neuropathies. Among individuals with type-2 diabetes, foot complications are a leading cause of hospital admissions. Many of these diabetes-related hospital stays and amputations could have been avoided with more effective diabetes management.

PREVENTABILITY OF AMPUTATIONS

In the United States, individuals with diabetes account for over half of all lower limb amputations—approximately 86,000 each year. Medical experts believe that nearly half of these amputations, caused by neuropathy, could have been preventable with proper care and management.
