Conclusions

The results of this study demonstrated that skin hydration is more influenced by microcirculation, rather than peripheral nerve function, in diabetic feet. This study may be the first to demonstrate a correlation between microcirculation and skin hydration in a large number of patients with diabetes treated using an identical management protocol at a single center.
