Further 230’000 new diabetic foot ulcer patients are recorded in Germany every year. The global prevalence of diabetes for all age-groups worldwide was estimated to be 2.8 % in 2000 and 4.4 % in 2030. The total number of people with diabetes is projected to rise from 171 million in 2000 to 366 million in 2030 (Wild et al., “The global prevalence of diabetes”, DIABETES CARE, Vol. 27, Nr. 5, 2004).
