ABSTRACT
Diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) is a major complication of diabetes mellitus. Coronavirus infectious disease 2019 (COVID-19) has created new necessities and priorities in DFS management. These include telemedicine and patient triage to minimise hospitalisation and visits to the clinic. Moreover, new studies will be needed to evaluate whether the lockdown in patients with DFS or in those with high risk of DFS have increased the risk of deteriorating outcomes, including limb loss. Our future challenge will lie in re-organising our world during the pandemic and after its resolution. We need more awareness of the widespread ways of the changes in taking care of patients and to improve education, skills, and behaviour of high-risk patients.
