Complete Health Indicator Report of Lower Extremity Amputations Among Persons with Diabetes

Definition

Incidence of lower extremity amputations per 1,000 persons diagnosed with diabetes

Numerator

Number of lower extremity amputations among persons with diagnosed diabetes

Denominator

Estimated number of persons with diagnosed diabetes

Why Is This Important?

Individuals with diabetes are unable to effectively produce or use insulin. This can lead to changes in blood vessels and nerves in the lower extremities resulting in ulceration as well as amputation. The World Health Organization estimates that 80% of all diabetic foot amputations can be prevented with proper diabetes management and care.

Healthy People Objective: Reduce the rate of lower extremity amputations in persons with diagnosed diabetes

U.S. Target: None. Tracking for informational purposes only.

Other Objectives

'''Healthy New Jersey 2020 Objective DM-2''': Reduce the rate of lower extremity amputations per 1,000 persons with diagnosed diabetes to 2.4 for the total population, 2.5 among Whites, 4.3 among Blacks, 1.3 among Hispanics, and 0.5 among Asians.
