Goal: Rehabilitation of amputation diabetic patient, my projected will be ongoing
Amputation is the intentional surgical removal of a limb or body part. In my country there are a lot of people living with diabetes mellitus. 60% of my people are nomads and they poor which causes to them to eat just to survive not to eat healthy diet. indspite of that there is a shortage of medications. This problem leads a lot of people to be amputated. Most of the amputated people are victims of PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder) this causes amputated patients to be hopeless, low self esteem, dependent which leads to be discriminated form certain positions in life and some may end up to attempting suicide.
