A diabetic foot is a foot that exhibits any pathology that results directly from diabetes mellitus or any long-term (or "chronic") complication of diabetes mellitus. Presence of several characteristic diabetic foot pathologies is called diabetic foot syndrome. These are thus umbrella terms.
- Ulceration – Research estimates that the lifetime incidence of foot ulcers within the diabetic community is around 15% and may become as high as 25%.
- Neuropathic osteoarthropathy
