Abstract

The incidence of diabetic foot complications in the Republic of Ireland is not known. A cross-sectional pilot study was undertaken to identify the prevalence of diabetic foot complications in a primary care setting in the west of Ireland, and to inform the design and feasibility of a larger community-based diabetic foot screening study in Ireland. Clinically important pedal neural dysfunction was detected in up to 30% of those screened, and vascular impairment was detected in some 17%.
