Diabetic Foot Infections

Diabetes is now a worldwide epidemic. Diabetic foot infections contribute significantly to the increased mortality and morbidity. In the current clinical practice, the possibility of fungal infections; and synergism and antagonism between microbes in diabetic foot wounds (DFWs) is often overlooked. This book reveals that one in four patients with DFWs would have deep seated fungal infections. The authors have developed a new molecular based technique for early detection of fungi from deep tissue of diabetic foot wounds. And proved that targeted antifungal therapy accelerated wound healing almost 30 days earlier than standard care alone in patients with fungal infections. Diabetic foot infections require a careful attention and coordinated management of a multidisciplinary foot-care team, which includes an infectious disease specialist and a medical microbiologist. Reinforcing preventive strategies and educating the diabetic patients about tight glycemic control, appropriate footwear practice, daily self-examination of foot and early reporting to the health professional for any untoward change over the feet would prevent leg amputation and death.

Diabetic Foot Infections

Diabetes is now considered as most common global metabolic disease affecting more than 150 million people worldwide. Diabetes is considered as a major health problem facing the world as life threatening disease. It is the seventh leading cause of death in the world. Diabetic foot problem is the major cause of hospital bed occupancy, so this research aimed to study the identification of bacteria isolated from diabetic foot infections. Also to determine the susceptibility of the various bacterial isolates to selected antibiotics commonly used in therapy of bacterial infections. Devitalized tissue provides a favourable environment for microbial growth and thus its removal will also reduce microbial load. Surgical debridement has been the mainstay of treatment of wounds of various etiologies. Due the current problems of antibiotic resistance and the difficulties in controlling MRSA (Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus) infection have led to increase interest in maggot therapy of wound healing. The research provides several practical recommendations which have been tested in Sudanese diabetics’ patients.
