72% Reduction in Amputation Rates Over 15 Years in Western Australia

The Fremantle Diabetes Study at UWA is showing an enormous sustained reduction in amputation rate even while bearing a significantly increased diabetes burden.

The risk of prevalent LEA in two cohorts of patients with type 2 diabetes from the same Australian community fell by 72 % over a 15-year period after adjustment for important between-group differences in diabetes-related and other variables. This improvement reflects primary care foot health-related initiatives introduced between Phases, and should have important individual and societal benefits against a background of a progressively increasing diabetes burden.
