7 pagesDate: March 1, 2024


This paper explores the importance of patient education and self-management strategies in mitigating the risk factors associated with diabetic foot problems. Patient education empowers individuals with diabetes to understand the implications of the disease on foot health and the importance of preventive measures. Key components of patient education include foot care practices, recognition of early warning signs, proper footwear selection, the importance of glycemic control, and the role of regular foot examinations. Moreover, educating patients about the consequences of foot complications, such as ulcers and amputations, fosters proactive engagement in self-care behaviors. Self-management strategies empower patients to take an active role in their foot health and overall diabetes management. These strategies encompass daily foot inspections, proper hygiene, moisturization, nail care, and prompt response to any abnormalities or injuries.
