Why It Matters

The number of people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK has more than doubled in the last twenty years5. As a result, the NHS spends at least £10billion per year on diabetes6.

Ulcers form due to a combination of factors, such as a lack of feeling in the foot, poor circulation, foot deformities, irritation (such as friction or pressure) and trauma. Fortunately, as research shows, the development of a foot ulcer is preventable.
