One selected question and Answer:
Why diabetes is selectively affecting the lower limb?
Answer by Dr. Jothydev
It is now proven that diabetes is now responsible for loss of one leg in
every 30 seconds, which is an alarming situation!!!
These amputations are the result of diabetes foot disease.Strict control of
blood sugar combined with the use of newer diagnostic methods like
Vibrometry, MF tests, Vascular doppler etc., will help identify high risk
foot so that preventive measures can be undertaken well ahead of time.
