Long-term complications of diabetes develop gradually.
The longer you have diabetes — and the less controlled
your blood sugar — the higher the risk of complications.
With the growing number of people living with diabetes
worldwide, healthcare professionals are encouraged to
pay attention to the major complications of diabetes
in their daily practice. It is therefore IDF’s vision is to
develop a series clinical practice recommendations for
health care professionals on specific topics, with the
aim of creating clinical guidelines in easily digestible
and user-friendly format and adaptable to any country,
region or health setting.
Diabetic foot is one of the most serious and costly
complications of diabetes. These new IDF Clinical
Practice Recommendations on the Diabetic Foot are an
excellent addition to the knowledge base underlying the
delivery of high-quality primary clinical care. We hope
that they will promote and improve diabetic foot care
within all seven IDF regions.
I would like to thank the IDF Diabetic Foot Committee,
headed by Dr. Ammar Ibrahim, for their tireless efforts
to produce these guidelines. Using their vast experience
in the field, the committee members methodically and
critically examined a vast amount of published scientific
evidence on the diabetic foot. These clinical practice
recommendations are a tribute to the skills of the authors
and it is with great pleasure that I pen these words to
relate my enthusiasm for their work.
It is my hope and expectation that these clinical
practice recommendations will provide an effective
learning experience and referenced resource for all
health professionals caring for people living with
diabetes, resulting in improved patient outcomes. I
therefore highly recommend that all primary care
health professionals make use of them for an optimal
management of diabetic foot complications in their
