Diabetic foot prophylaxis is a key prescription for uncomplicated diabetes. World experience proves that over 80% of complications are preventable through preventive action.

Diabetic foot prophylaxis is well-developed in modern medicine. Achieving good control of blood glucose levels is a must for avoiding complications of diabetes mellitus. To accomplish this goal, united efforts and coordinated actions of a team of treating endocrinologists, neurologists, vascular surgeons, dermatologists, orthopedists and diabetes professionals are required. Equally important for the success of prophylaxis is the personal attitude and the high health culture of the patient at risk, who monitors his condition and seeks competent help at the first signs of developing the syndrome.
