Abstract:

Guidelines are established to address specific needs of a clinical problem and assist clinicians with decision-making. The complexity of Type 2 diabetes warrants the use of such guidelines to help provide evidence-based treatment. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) foot care guidelines recommend providing education to all patients despite their risk, in order to increase awareness of lower extremity complications and prevent them from occurring. In this project, a diabetic lower extremity educational intervention based on ADA guidelines was provided to 16 Type 2 diabetics over four months. During this time, a reduction in diabetic lower extremity complications was seen. Concluding, if ADA guidelines were followed and lower extremity education were provided to all patients, complications could decrease.
