Abstract

[Extract] The observations by Bakhtiyari and Mansournia on our study [1] were received with great interest. We believe our study was consistent with a case-control format [2]. In particular, our target population was selected from subjects diagnosed with diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) at the local high-risk foot clinic, effectively fulfilling the criteria of control (DFU without amputations) and case (DFU with amputation), as previously described [3].
