The international consensus and practical guidelines on the management and prevention of the diabetic foot.

Author information

Department of Endocrinology, University Hospital Maastricht, The Netherlands.


Diabetic foot ulcers pose a great burden on both the patient and the health care system. A multifactorial approach is necessary in diagnosing and treating these patients, with the input of many different specialists. These different view points and approaches were the basis for the International Consensus on the Diabetic Foot, resulting in a worldwide network of professionals involved in the management of diabetic patients with foot problems. Moreover, several consensus texts were produced and the project resulted in many (local) national initiatives. These activities, which are a continuous process and which are embedded in the International Diabetes Federation, are described in the article.
