Objectives: To record the rate of diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) in cases with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Material and Methods: We included 200 type 2 diabetic cases for evaluation of DFS. All cases were evaluated for the presence/absence of DFS. After clinical and neurological examination of diabetic foot, the cases were classified in 4 categories (according to International Consensus on Diabetic Foot Risk Classification).
Results: Out of 200 cases, 44%(n=88) were male and 56%(n=112) were females, mean age of the patients was calculated as 53.11+8.47 years, the diabetic foot syndrome was recorded in 12%(n=24) of the cases.
Conclusion: We estimated a higher rate of diabetic foot syndrome in type 2 diabetes mellitus cases. Good glycemic control along with adequate awareness regarding diabetes related complications and proper care may reduce the risk of this morbidity.
