Diabetic foot risk stratification and triage – low risk
No risk factors present except callus e.g. no loss of sensation, no signs of peripheral vascular disease and no other risk factors.
Annual screening by a suitably trained Health Care Worker. Tell people that they are at low risk of foot ulceration and agree a self-management plan. Provide written and verbal information about diabetes and the importance of blood glucose control, basic foot care and footwear. Advise them that they could progress to moderate or high risk. Provide information about foot emergencies and who to contact.
