Diabetic foot infections (DFI) are one of the most common diabetes-related causes of hospitalization in the United States. Conditions of wound infection, poor circulation, nerve disease, and kidney disease frequently complicate this condition.

A diabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that can occur in patients with diabetes and is commonly located on the bottom of the foot. Ulcers that become infected, result in most patients having to be hospitalized, increase the risk of potential lower extremity amputation and in extreme cases, may cause death. More than 25 million people in the United States are estimated to have diabetes mellitus (DM). Of those 25 million, 15–25% will develop a diabetic foot ulcer during their lifetime.

Diabetic nephropathy is kidney disease caused by type 1 or type 2 diabetes. When the glomeruli, small filters in the kidneys that carry excess fluid and waste from blood into the urine, are damaged as a complication of diabetes, this can cause kidney disease or failure. Symptoms include swelling, nausea, and fatigue.

Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes caused by damaged blood vessels in the tissue of the eye's retina. Too much sugar in the blood can cause the small blood vessels that lead to the retina to be blocked. There are two types of diabetic retinopathy - nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), in which vessels in the retina have tiny bulges, leak and don’t grow correctly, and advanced (proliferative) diabetic retinopathy, where vessels are blocked completely and new, non-working vessels form, causing fluid to build-up (glaucoma). Symptoms may not appear at first, but as the disease progresses, blurred vision, dark spots, and vision loss can happen.
