Abstract
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.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1904, “Diabetic Foot Ulcer”. The term 'foot ulcer' is used to describe an open sore that happens below the ankle and may be on any part of the foot. Some people with diabetes may develop a foot ulcer. These ulcers are often slow to heal and may get infected. This pamphlet explains who is at risk for a foot ulcer, how to know if you have nerve damage (diabetic neuropathy), and symptoms of diabetic neuropathy. It also describes how to know if you have a foot ulcer, treatment, prevention, and tips for foot orthotics and shoes.
