Did you know foot ulcers will develop in 15-25% of people with Diabetes over their lifetime?

Or that 1.5 million people have a lower limb or foot amputated due to diabetes each year? That’s the equivalent of one amputation every 20 seconds worldwide.

The number of people diagnosed with Diabetes worldwide is estimated to increase to 380 million by the year 2025.

Diabetes can cause many changes in your circulation, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and the skin of your feet. 

 So how do you turn these frightening statistics around?
