UNNECESSARY Diabetic Limb Amputations World Wide.
Help us To Stop Both Upper and Lower Limbs Amputations Due to DIABETES Worldwide.
DIABETES Mellitus is a major global health problem and has reached epidemic proportions in many developed and developing countries. This is contributed by the global changes of population growth, longevity, urbanization, Industrialization, increasing obesity, and sedentary lifestyle. The recent Covid 19 has also taken a big swipe on patients with diabetes as their casualty.
It is predicted that by 2025, the number of diabetes sufferers in Asia would exceed 100 million.
The medical and surgical advancements have managed to only reduced incidence of Diabetic related lower limb amputations from 20 to 30 seconds per limb over the past 10 years. That is every 30 seconds, per diabetic limb is being amputated at some part of the world.
We are losing the daily battle with this condition being prolonged. In Reality, Mortality due to diabetes and Diabetic limb amputations is worse compared to combined mortality rates of both HIV and Cancer together.
In Malaysia, the prevalence of diabetes has increased; 4% in the 1980s, 8.3% in 1996, to 14.9% in 2006 – an increase of 250% over 20 years!
It is predicted that if this trend continues, one in every five adult Malaysians above the age of 30 would be diabetic.
In the National Health and Morbidity Survey 2006 conducted by the Health Ministry, 4% to 7% of known diabetics had undergone toe or leg amputations.
Diabetic foot is defined as a condition of the foot directly caused by diabetes or is due to its long term complications. There are three factors leading to this condition:
- Peripheral arterial disease – narrowing or blockage of the arterial supply to the foot, causing ischaemia of the tissue.
- Peripheral neuropathy – an affliction of the nerve of the foot leading to loss of sensation, numbness, paraesthesia or altered sensation, pain, and deformity of the foot and toes.
- Infection – this occurs as a direct result of the two previous conditions. Diabetics also suffer from impaired immunity, leading to the inability to ward off minor infections.
