  • 2. Diabetic foot gangrene remains a big problem and, quite often, the main cause of amputation.Gangrene results from the impaired blood supply to the affected tissues. It comes in two major forms: •Dry Gangrene, also known asmummification, most commonly associated with diabetes and atherosclerosis. •Wet Gangrene, also known asmoist gangrene, which is a form of infected dry gangrene. Foot gangrene is most common inolder people, usually as a complication of poorly controlled diabetes.
