Diabetic Foot Care
A comprehensive foot examination and part counselling is the key in preventing diabetic foot
Diabetic Foot has become a socio economic problem and can be tackled with team effort
Mobilizing a diabetic foot patient becomes difficult. Home dressing becomes convenient and cost effective for patient
DfC India (DIABETIC FOOT CLINIC) is a need based clinic. With an increase in the number of diabetic patients and an increase in the number of actively working diabetics, it is a pity to see the debility associated with a diabetic foot. It is still sadder to note THAT A LARGE NUMBER OF FOOT COMPLICATIONS ARE TOTALLY PREVENTABLE.
As most of the foot problems in a diabetic are preventable, educating the patient about his problem is of foremost importance. He ought to be fully aware about regular monitoring of blood sugar levels thereby reducing complications, he ought to be fully aware that NOT having pain in a wound is a BAD sign and not a good one, he ought to be fully aware that prompt diabetic foot treatment can make a difference between saving a foot or losing a foot………….the list is endless.
All this requires time and a holistic approach. DIABETIC FOOT TREATMENT is not by an individual but by a team comprising of surgeon, diabetologist, podiatrist, nutritionist, shoemaker and a counselor . It requires a dedicated team of dressers who can make home visits to take care of complicated and cumbersome dressings. With this mission a team of professionals led by Dr.Tushar D. Rege, Diabetic Foot Surgeon, came together to start a clinic to be run in a scientific manner to cater to foot problems and complications in diabetics. In addition, educating people through camps and seminars remains one of the prime agendas of DFC.
Create awareness amongst people to the concept of Diabetic Foot as a serious entity and treat it in scientific way to avoid amputations wherever possible.
