Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease which if not controlled can cause complications. One of the complications of type 2 diabetes is often the case of diabetic foot ulcers even amputation. The first step is prevention in saving the diabetic foot is by foot care. In addition, there should be early screening for diabetic foot to detect the risk of diabetic foot. This study aims to determine the relationship of foot care with the risk of diabetic foot in patients with type 2 diabetes in Haji Adam Malik Hospital in Medan. The study design used is the correlation with cross sectional analytic approach. There are a total of thirty patients with type 2 diabetes in the endocrine polyclinic outpatient unit at Haji Adam Malik Hospital which is taken through consecutive sampling techniques. The analysis used for this study was chi-square to determine the relationship of foot care with the risk of diabetic foot. The results showed that there were 83.3% of patients with good foot care; however, the remaining 30% of pasients have high risk of diabetic foot. Foot care and the risk of diabetic foot has a significant relationship with value 0,001 ( <0.05). Patients with good foot care have a chance of preventing the risk of diabetic foot ulcers at 6.25 times compared to those with less good foot care (95% CI OR: 2,546; 15 344). This shows that good foot care can reduce the risk of diabetic foot. Therefore, nurses are expected to be able to routinely educate patients about foot care, the treatments of type two diabetes, diabetic foot risk assessment and also to provide support so that patients can control their blood glucose so it stays in the normal range.
