During a period of 3 months, 50 patients who had undergone treatment for diabetic foot were followed up (Male-38, Female-12; Maximum affected age group 41-50 years; diabetes duration 5-10 years). Results: 50 patients (38 males and 12 females) were included in the study. From the study incidence rate was more identified in the age group of 41-50 years of age. Occurrence of diabetic foot is 56% of patients with neuropathy and 30% of patients with PVD. 8.1-9% of HbA1c highly showed about 50% of patients. Cephalosporin antibiotics were mostly prescribed to control infections. Insulin is prescribed along with other oral hypoglycaemic agents.
