    DIABETIC FOOT CAMP | From 20-Jan-10 TO 23-Feb-10

    Diabetes is a life threatening condition and is spreading throughout the world including Pakistan. According to a survey approximately 11 % of Pakistani population suffers from diabetes. Untreated diabetes can lead to complications that include cardiac problems, Stroke, kidney failure and neuropathy etc.

    Diabetics tend to heal slowly and suffer from poor circulation, which puts their feet at risk for a variety of serious problems. Everyone suffering from diabetes is at risk of developing “neuropathy” a condition where nerves in the feet are damaged. The most common result of neuropathy is loss of feeling in the feet, and this can if not taken care of, might as well be a starting point for developing severe damage to the feet of a person with diabetes. Small undetected injuries can grow to major ulcers before the person inflicted eventually visits the doctor. Diabetic foot problems carry powerful consequences, including nerve impairment, serious infection and sometimes amputation is the only option left to eventually save the persons life. Globally, diabetes is responsible for more than 1 million amputations every year, and next to injuries caused by accidents. Diabetes is the most common cause of lower limb amputations, according to the International Diabetes Federation.

    Keeping in view the emergence of the need for awareness and to broadcast knowledge in Diabetic patients for prevention of diabetic foot complications, Liaquat National Hospital organized a Free of Cost Diabetic Foot Camp on January 20, 2010 at LNH. The Foot Camp was inaugurated by Dr. Salman Faridi, Medical Director of Liaquat National Hospital. Dr. Salman Faridi acknowledged the efforts of the consultants of the Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology and hoped that such awareness events be held in future as well. The camp was attended by almost 200 patients who were provided consultation by expert physicians.
