Incidence of lower extremity amputations among patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes in the United States from 2010 to 2014

Our data showed a higher incidence of LEA, especially minor LEA, in patients with T1D and T2D compared with those without diabetes, with a greater risk among patients with T1D than patients with T2D. Accounting for known and measurable risk factors for LEA reduced the relative hazard by nearly 50%; … — Read on pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32090430/ […]
