Doctors celebrate success in saving limbs of diabetics

Doctors at a Bangor hospital say there has been a big drop in the number of diabetic people having legs or feet amputated.

Jenny Glover, 69, from Wrexham, has type 2 diabetes.

Just before Christmas, the team at Ysbyty Gwynedd, led by Prof Dean Williams, managed to save her foot from being amputated.

Staff said better co-ordination between medical and nursing staff has helped them to act quicker.

Having feet, toes or fingers amputated is a known risk for people with diabetes because they often lose sensation in their limbs.

Ms Glover told BBC Wales' Christopher Dearden that she "owes the medical team everything".
