  2. Demonstrate how to use a monofilament to assess sensation.
  3. Discuss the use of screening forms to report findings.

According to a 2019 article published in Diabetes Care, the rate of amputations in the U.S. is increasing. Each year, people with diabetes experience approximately 200,000 non-traumatic amputations. African Americans are 4 times more likely to experience diabetes-related amputation than whites. In the United States, every 17 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes, and every day 230 Americans with diabetes will suffer an amputation.

We can make a difference and help reverse this trend.  Basic foot care assessment and education can reduce the risk of amputation by over 50 percent. By assessing and screening for loss of protective sensation with a monofilament, diabetes healthcare professionals can immediately identify high-risk feet and take steps to protect lower extremities

We are excited to share this life-saving information with our community of diabetes advocates.
