experiments they clearly support the latest

the
nutritional management of patients with
diabetes mellitus of the Diabetes and
Nutrition Study Group of the EASD6
according to which ‘most dietary intake
should come from a combination of
carbohydrates and monounsaturated fatty
acids with a cis-configuration’.
The reduction of high triglyceride levels
may also be important in view of the
recent demonstration that high triglyceride
levels enhance monocyte binding to endothelial cells in non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (an early event in the
development of atherosclerotic lesions).7

Increased Frequency of Diabetic Foot
Publications
Diabetic foot disease is a major contributor to the morbidity of patients with
diabetes and is a significant and increasing
contributor to inpatient costs.1 It has been
suggested that half the number of diabetic
foot lesions will occur with the improved
education of health professionals than by
education of the patient.2 Bailey et al.3
found very low rates of examination of
the foot in a diabetes clinic. As this work
was carried out in 1982, it would be
expected that the interest and understanding by health professionals of foot problems in diabetes to have improved since
then.
The American Diabetes Association
added a Foot Council as one of its
professional sections in 1986. Two International Symposiums on the Diabetic Foot
have been held in Amsterdam in 1991
and 19954 with the 1995 meeting being
attended by over 500 participants from
46 countries. A biennial Diabetic Foot
conference and workshop has been held
in Malvern5 since 1984. An annual Diabetic Foot Update is now held in San
Antonio each year.
As one measure of this subjective
improvement, the following reviews were
carried out:

A Medline database search for the
text keywords ‘diabetes’ and ‘foot’ for
the 9 years 1980 to 1988. In total,
22 283 papers with the keyword ‘diabetes’ were identified, of which
0.69 %154 also contained the keyword
‘foot’. For the 8 years 1989 to 1996,
32 855 papers were identified with
the keyword ‘diabetes’ of which
1.37 %451 also referred to the foot—
a 2-fold increase.
A Cinahl database search for the text
keywords ‘diabetes’ and ‘foot’. For
the 7 years 1982 to 1988, 506 papers
with the keyword ‘diabetes’ were
identified, of which 1.78 %9 also
contained the keyword ‘foot’. For the
8 years 1989 to 1996, 1478 papers
were identified with the keyword
‘diabetes’, of which 3.65 %54 also
referred to the foot—a 2-fold increase.
The indexes of Diabetic Medicine
were reviewed. For the 6 years 1984
to 1989, 587 original articles, editorials and reviews were published,
2.73 %16 were directly related to the
foot and/or lower extremity. For the
7 years 1990 to 1996, 925 papers
were published of which 4.93 %46
were of relevance to the foot—a 1.8fold increase.
A similar review was done of Diabetes
Care. In the 6 years 1986 to 1991, a
total of 772 original papers, editorial
or reviews were published with
1.68 %13 related to the foot and/or
5.
lower extremity. In the 5 years 1992
to 1996, a total of 1090 papers were
published of which 3.8 %42 related
to the foot/lower extremity—a 2.2fold increase.
The abstract books for the American
Diabetes Association annual meeting
were reviewed to determine the total
numbers of abstracts and the percent
of those that related to the foot. For
the 9 years 1980 to 1988, a total of
6663 abstracts were published, of
which 0.36 %24 related to the foot.
For the 8 years 1989 to 1996, there
were a total of 9017 abstracts, with
1.18 %106 related to the foot—a 3.3fold increase.
These reviews show an increased frequency of publications in the literature
related to the diabetic foot. These should,
at least, lead to a better subjective understanding by health professionals involved
with diabetic patients to understand and
manage the problem in a more optimal
way.
