(eurekalert.org)
  • For years clinicians have been advocating investment in evidence-based diabetic foot care recommendations but unfortunately this investment is still to be fully recognised," Mr Lazzarini said. (eurekalert.org)

  • Self-reported health-related quality of life (HRQOL) surveys can provide a generic measure of overall health (global) and can be disease specific (i.e., diabetes) or even region specific (i.e., lower-extremity function). (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Previous studies have demonstrated that patients with diabetes-related foot disease have low self-reported physical quality of life but do not typically report low mental quality of life. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • A recent systematic review identified 20 different diabetes-specific HRQOL instruments, and the authors indicated that combining generic with disease-specific measures may improve specificity ( 1 , 2 ). (diabetesjournals.org)
