My father suffered from diabetes since he was 20 years old. He developed gangrene and had leg amputation. It has been 30 years ago, so I guess from this example life expectancy is high.

The statistics regarding diabetic life expectancy after an amputation related to diabetes complications such as gangrene, diabetic foot infections, and bone infections (osteomyelitis) Every 30 seconds a limb somewhere is amputated as a consequence of diabetes.

In fact, we know that diabetes makes you 46 times more likely you will have an amputation. Within one year after a diabetic foot amputation, 26.7% will have another amputation. Three years after the first diabetic amputation, 48.3% will have another amputation. Within 5 years of a diabetes related amputation, 60.7% will have another amputation.

If that isn't bad enough, diabetics with amputations don’t live very long. We know that about 50% of all diabetics with an amputation are dead 3 years after the amputation.

65% of all of those with a diabetic amputation are dead 5 years.

In spite of this, there is hope... most are preventable. Check your feet every day and see a podiatrist, podiatric surgeon, or foot surgeon specializing in diabetic limb salvage if you start to get any open sore or wounds on your feet. Do not wait until it is infected.

With these simple interventions you can keep your feet,.

Amputation due to gangrene, can lead to serious complication but one has to consider different aspects of the issue pertaining to the patient, firstly age, secondly exercises, thirdly diet, and fourthly medication, no amount of medication can do good if the other areas are not taken into consideration, and lastly allowing the person the comfort to cope with his /her loss of limb,a lot of emotional support is required for the person to heal and a generous amount of exercise, and last but not least prayers, my mother suffered from this and died eventually within six months of the amputation, but i have seen cases where patients with a strong will can make dramatic changes.

a fmily member had a similar issue 10 years ago where he lost his toes then his foot then eventually his whole leg. Unfortunately, he is having the other leg removed above the knee today due to gangreen. He has the added complication that his kidneys have totally failed in the last 2 months so it doesn't look good. What quality of life can he expect with no legs and plugged in to a dialysis machine every third day. Prevention is better than cure....watch your diets and exercise!

My mom is 76 and diabetic. Due to poor circulation in her legs she had gangrene and infections so she lost one leg six months ago and her second taken today after it became septic with no hope of healing. I'm not sure she can go on much longer. Any suggestions on how to help her best cope with this?

Colloidal silver kills MRSA!! It kills all bacteria in 2 minutes. They have known since 1930 big pharma puts a cabash on it because of money. They can't sell antibiotics if silver is working. You can buy it for 35 at health store or order it from amazon. God be with you all.
