In 2007, Dr. Armstrong and his team reported a summary of data comparing diabetic foot complications to cancer. Diabetic lower extremity complications remain enormously burdensome today. Most notably, Diabetic Foot Ulcers and Lower Extremity Amputation appear to be more than just a marker of poor health. They are independent risk factors associated with premature death. This report refreshes the data from 2007 with the best available data as they currently exist.
