    Wow this is really important information. Thanks for posting. Was there any information on preventative treatments and their affect?

    Intersting thread, even if it goes back a bit.
    Having screened quite a lot of diabetic feet in the community setting, and seen a few people both high and low risk have an injury develop infections and end up in hospital +/- amputation

    I've wondered if I can improve on what I do.
    I check for the usual suspects, loss of protective sensation, peripheral arterial supply, previous Hx of diabetic wound/amputation, foot deformity, inadequate footwear.
    If available I'll have a look at their glycaemic control.

    This establishes if the patient is at the high or low risk for diabetic foot wound, although as the quoted study suggests may not be "predictive"

    I wonder we would get a more predictive result ( and indication of risk) from an assessment of patients susceptabiliy for "risk taking behaviour" or "lifestyle" .Hopefully something more in enlightening than being male and a smoker.

    My current assessment for diabetic foot risk only covers the currently accepted objective "medical" risk factors , which when found will determine my advice and management of the patient.

    However I'm thinking that my risk assessment may not really account for the actual ( predictive?) risk and that my assessment of the client may not account for the clients state of readiness to recieve some of my advice/care.

    Interested to hear what others see as risk/predictive factors and if any have a structured approach to assesssing clients state of engagement in consultation.

    or if someones already researched it !

    Thanks

    Greg
