Foot problems in diabetic patients are some of the most challenging complications to treat. Visual recognition of presenting clinical signs is absolutely key for a successful diagnosis and subsequently, the right management programme. 

Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3rd edition provides diabetes professionals, specialist diabetes nurses and podiatrists with expert guidance on the clinical management of patients with severe feet problems associated with diabetes such as ulcers, infections and necrosis.  

Practical and succinct, it guides you chronologically through the progressive stages of diabetic foot disease: the normal foot; high-risk foot, ulcerated foot, infected foot, necrotic foot and unsalvageable foot. 

By focusing on the need for a speedy response to the clinical signs, it enables you to make rapid, effective management decisions in order to help prevent deterioration and help reduce the need for eventual foot amputation.

Full colour throughout and with over 150 clinical photos, it includes numerous hints and tips as well as referring to the latest national and international guidelines on diabetic foot management.

If you're managing patients with foot disease as a result of their diabetes, this rapid-reference pocketbook will save you time and effort by putting essential information within easy reach.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martin C. Yorath, DPM (Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science)
Description: This pocket-sized book provides a succinct overview of the challenging and complex area of clinical management of the diabetic foot. The first edition was published in 2000.
Purpose: The purpose is to reinforce the multidisciplinary approach that is necessary with diabetic patients, and while there are several on this subject, there are few, if any which provide this type of breadth in such a small volume. The concept of early diagnosis and treatment is reinforced throughout.
Audience: Aimed at all involved in the management of the diabetic foot, both medical and nonmedical, the book sends its message to the target audiences well. Michael Edmonds and Ali Foster are a British Medical Association co-author award winning team, and are well respected within this field.
Features: The book is arranged into six sections, covering all of the clinical conditions from the "normal" diabetic foot through to the unsalvageable foot. Each section is color coded for easy reference, with an appendix covering differential diagnosis for the foot in diabetes. Overall, it is a very easy book to use and read. Color photography is extensively used throughout, and imaging studies are well reproduced. Tables are frequently used as well. References are not cited, but there is a short further reading list at the end of the book.
Assessment: This is an excellent book, and while there are more extensive books available, few are able to put it together as neatly and simply as this one does. The second edition is justified for its enhanced coverage of the neuropathic foot, metabolic management, amputee management, and some aspects of surgical management. While clearly aimed at the U.K. market, the general principles discussed here are just as valid in the United States. It is highly recommended.
From the Publisher
“Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3E, is the ideal go-to clinical tool for all diabetes professionals, specialist diabetes nurses and podiatrists managing patients with diabetic foot problems.” (Kingbook73's Medical Ebook and Video Collection, 30 September 2014)
