Diabetic Foot Ulcer

Diabetic Foot Ulcer is a wound or open sore on the foot of a person who has diabetes, most commonly found on the bottom of their foot. These often go unnoticed due to loss of sensation, which can lead to infection and further problems. If not treated properly and in a time sensitive manner, diabetic foot ulcers can lead to partial or full amputation of the foot or even leg.
