Latest guidance on how to manage foot infections in people living with diabetes is now available for healthcare professionals.

The International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot (IWGDF) and Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) have released the guideline to improve the diagnosis and therapeutic management of foot infections among people with diabetes.

“We believe that following these recommendations will help healthcare professionals provide better care for persons with diabetes and foot infections, prevent the number of foot and limb amputations, and reduce the patient and healthcare burden of diabetes-related food disease,” said the authors.

The guidance has been published simultaneously in Diabetes/Metabolism: Research and Reviews and Clinical Infectious Diseases
