Geelong Podiatrist with Diabetes Australia – Campaign to end amputationsOctober 25, 2017
In Australia, it is estimated that 1.2 million people aged 2 years and over have been diagnosed with diabetes, meaning that over 5% of the entire nation are living with the condition. Every year there are 10,000 hospital admissions in Australia for diabetes-related foot ulcers – 4,400 of these admissions result in some form of lower limb amputation.
Here at Podiatry@Belmont, we aim to assist you in any way possible and if you have any diabetes related questions or concerns, feel free to contact us, your Geelong Podiatrists, to book in a consultation.
Below is a short video released by Diabetes Australia ( www.diabetesaustralia.com.au/ ) which explains the 4400 reasons to End Amputations Campaign that they have just launched.
