Dr. Robert Greenhagen and his coauthors, Drs. Dane Wukich and Robert Frykberg, recently published their findings on vitamin D and the risk of various diabetic foot complications.  The authors found that low vitamin D increased the risk of ulceration, infection, and peripheral arterial disease.  While the use of supplementation to prevent these conditions was not performed, we suggest that everyone consider vitamin D supplementation.  This is especially important for individuals that live north of the 37 degrees latitude, which includes the Nebraska and Iowa areas.
