If untreated, a blister or small cut can become a diabetic foot ulcer (DFU), which is the biggest risk factor for amputation,” explains Lee C. Rogers, DPM, co-director of the amputation prevention center at Valley Presbyterian Hospital in Los Angeles. Daily foot care and glucose control are essential, but proper foot care requires teamwork, especially once you have a wound.

Dr. Lee Rogers

According to Dr. Rogers, no single medical specialty is capable of providing the care necessary to prevent and manage foot ulcers. Regular visits to a podiatrist are essential. But once you have a DFU, the team will consist of, at minimum, a vascular surgeon and a diabetic podiatrist, but may well require an infectious disease specialist, a wound specialist, and others as well.
