Respondent Demographics

Te majority of respondents—62.3 percent—were male, and 81 percent of all respondents were over the age of 40. Most had ex-perienced a lower-limb loss. Sufering a traumatic incident was the most-cited cause of limb loss (47.7 percent), followed by non-diabetes-related infection (12.8 percent) and cancer (12.5 percent). Nearly 93 percent of respondents have been living with limb loss for more than two years,which indicates that the responses are, by and large, based on patient experiences beyond the initial adjust-ment to living with limb loss.
