Les termes « ulcère du pied » sont utilisés pour décrire une plaie ouverte qui se situe sous la cheville sur n’importe quelle partie du pied. Certaines personnes diabétiques peuvent avoir un ulcère du pied. Comme la guérison de ces ulcères est souvent lente, ils peuvent s’infecter. La présente brochure explique qui est à risque de développer un ulcère du pied, la façon de savoir si les nerfs sont atteints (neuropathie diabétique) et les symptômes de la neuropathie diabétique. On y explique aussi comment savoir si vous avez un ulcère du pied, comment le traiter et comment le prévenir. Des conseils sur les orthèses du pied et les chaussures sont aussi proposés.

These ulcers are often slow to heal and may get infected.

It also describes how to know if you have a foot ulcer, treatment, prevention, and tips for foot orthotics and shoes.
