Reducing the Risk of Amputation




The thought of amputation can be frightening, but there are steps you can take to reduce the risk.


Proper foot care practices, including daily inspection, moisturizing, and wearing appropriate footwear, are essential for preventing complications. Regular visits to healthcare providers, including podiatrists, for foot exams and education on diabetic foot care can provide invaluable guidance and support.


  • Regular exercise and a balanced diet can help maintain overall health and reduce the risk of complications.

  • Promptly treating any foot injuries or wounds can prevent them from becoming more severe.

  • Seeking medical attention for any changes in foot sensation or the development of foot wounds is crucial.
