The current discussion on D-NET:
Meet the Expert: Clinical Practice Recommendations on the Diabetic Foot 2017

The IDF Diabetic Foot Guidelines is to protect the diabetic foot from breakdown, preventing foot ulceration and lower limb amputations, by taking preventative measures early in the disease process and treating the foot in the early Risk Categories of 1, and 2 and before they become the very high Risk Category 3.

  • How do you find the simplified, easy to digest Diabetic Foot guidelines?
  • Do you have questions, concerns or are there any sections that needs further clarification?
  • How comfortable is everyone in diagnosing a Stage 0 and Stage 1 Charcot Foot?

This month Dr. Ammar Ibrahim, Dr. Edward Jude and Dr. Katia Langton are leading this discussion, which offers an exclusive chance to ask any questions you may have about the IDF Clinical Practice Recommendations.

We look forward to connecting with you on D-NET!
