WELL KNOWN CAUSE OF AMPUTATION

Nerve disease triggered by type-2 diabetes is the top cause of amputation of feet, toes, legs, hands among diabetes patients. Collectively, the disorders which cause these amputations are known as Diabetic Neuropathies. Foot problems are the most frequent reasons for hospital stays of people with type-2 diabetes. It is unfortunate how many diabetes-linked hospital stays and amputations could have been avoided with better management of diabetes.

FIFTY PERCENT OF AMPUTATIONS ARE AVOIDABLE

The earlier that action is taken to maximize insulin sensitivity, the greater the chance is of avoiding the need for amputation. Regrettably, too many patients receive a late diagnosis of diabetes and have to undergo amputations. Over half of all lower limb amputations in the USA occur in people with diabetes– 86,000 amputations annually at the last count. Medical professionals estimate that nearly half of the amputations caused by neuropathy could well have been prevented.
