Abstract: As microvascular complications, diabetic neuropathy and nephropathy are closely linked. People with advanced renal dysfunction are at increased risk of foot ulceration and mortality, and people with both renal failure and foot complications have a higher risk of death than those with renal failure alone. In this article, the author reviews the risk factors for developing foot complications in relation to renal failure, as illustrated by a case report, and makes recommendations to improve care and outcomes in the high-risk group of people with diabetes and comorbid renal disease.
