Diabetes and Diabetic Foot Ulcers in India

Diabetes in India is exploding. The Diabetes Atlas estimates India had 40 million people with diabetes and will have over 70 million by 2025.

According to a November 14, 2009, article on the Punjab Newsline Network, India has very few podiatrists, diabetic counselors, and dieticians. Therefore the burden of care will fall on general practitioners and on the patients themselves.

 If practitioners in India have questions about using ShearBan® to prevent and treat diabetic foot ulcers, they should contact Endolite India which distributes Tamarack and Becker products in India.
