ARLINGTON, Virginia , February 11, 2022 (press release) –

New interactive online experience with personalized solutions for preventing and managing diabetes-related foot complications available today!

Every four minutes, an American loses a limb due to diabetes—a complication that could be preventable when given the right tools. As part of its commitment to provide access to the necessary education and resources to combat diabetes-related health complications that can lead to amputations, the American Diabetes Association® (ADA) recently launched the Foot Care & Amputation section of Living with Diabetes.

“We’re excited to partner with Dr. Comfort to expand our foot care and amputation prevention resources,” said Charles Henderson, Chief Development Officer. “Diabetes can cause many kinds of foot problems and because the risks and complications can change over time, there is no single solution or prescribed course of action that will work for all 37.3 million Americans living with the disease. That’s why we created an interactive online experience designed to meet individuals wherever they are on their diabetes foot care journey, and provide the best information based on their particular needs.”

For those who have been recently diagnosed with diabetes, this new interactive website offers tips for warding off foot issues, lists of signs and symptoms to be aware of, ways you can find a foot specialist in your area, and much more.
