    :good:

    This reminds me of an issue I have. I have an issue with all the time and resources we spend on diabetic foot self care, but we forget about the PVD people (and the above posts reminds me, that those with lympoedema should also be included).

    Re: Foot care practices in those with lympoedema

    I get what your saying, but to be rather an*l and pedantic - lymphatic filariasis/elephantiasis are strictly due to parasitic infections from mosquito borne disease, and sit outside of the vascular diseases group.

    There are other tropical diseases that we never talk about (mostly because podiatry is not practiced in the tropics to a large degree), which are equally significant; such as ainhum, Transkei foot, Buruli ulcer and leprosy that rarely get a mention but affect millions in equatorial regions.

    I agree though, I think we need to expand our typical thoughts about the 'high-risk foot' to encompass the many other medical conditions that place a foot at risk for significant infections and morbidity.

    These conditions are far more devastating than a niggling biomechanical toss caused by overweight middle-class Westerners trying to drop a few kilo's from binging over Xmas. Where is podiatry??

    I agree we need to encompass more than just diabetics. Where i work we have a current divide in the service on offer. In the area we have control over there are specialist, hospital based diabetic foot clinics and also a High risk clinic. These are staffed by podiatrists who are skilled in these areas plus consultants and nurses. There are also community based high risk clnics which include diabetics, PAD, RHA, Gout, Alcoholics, ETC. These are staffed by pods only but they have direct links with the hospital team.
