Diabetic Foot Care PEDucational Video
Orpyx is thrilled to announce the launch of the ‘Diabetes Can Knock You Off Your Feet’ campaign! Our goal is to raise awareness about diabetes and its associated complications, specifically diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy causes a loss of feeling in the feet and lower legs, where the nerves are damaged from high blood sugar levels. This lack of pain feedback can lead to a host of devastating side effects including infections, ulcers and ultimately, amputations. When proper prevention steps are observed, amputations can be reduced by up to 85%.
We hope this video will reach as many people as possible through social media, diabetes blogs and sharing! Please feel free to use the video for educational purposes relating to proper diabetic foot care. Let us know your thoughts on the video and pass it on!
