Associations between racial and ethnic groups and foot self-inspection in people with diabetes

Diabetes Care Mar 13, 2020

Littman AJ, et al. - In the present study, the researchers sought to evaluate differences in foot self-inspection among people with diabetes by race/ethnicity. Utilizing national, cross-sectional data from the 2015–2017 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System surveys and including 88,424 individuals with diabetes, they calculated prevalence ratios (PRs) and associated 95% CIs of daily foot checking for sores or irritation by racial and ethnic groups using log-binomial linear regression models, after survey weights were taken into account. The higher frequency of foot self-inspection at elevated risk of diabetes-related lower-limb amputation (LLA) in racial and ethnic groups is not sufficient to eradicate LLA disparities; more measures are needed to achieve this goal.
