Cover Page

Abstract


The diabetic foot syndrome is one of the most frequent reasons for hospitalization among the diabetic population and also one of the most common cause for lower-limb amputation. Apart from the obvious associated morbidity, patients with diabetic foot have an increased risk of death from cardiovascular diseases. Correction of glycaemia, serum lipids and blood pressure lead to a regress in progression of diabetes complications. In this article, the influence of cardiovascular risk factors on occurrence and progression of the diabetic foot syndrome in the Indian diabetic population during a 1-year follow up was analyzed.
