Foot ulceration is a serious problem among people with diabetes. This study assessed the knowledge, attitude, and practice of 483 people with diabetes with regard to the prevention of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). Data were collected using a valid and reliable questionnaire, and logistic regression was carried out to predict the effect of statistically significant independent variables on the scores of dependent variables. A significant association was found between knowledge and attitude about DFU prevention. Individuals who were unmarried were more likely to have higher knowledge scores than those who were married, and those who had university and secondary education were more likely to have higher attitude and practice scores than other groups. Overall, however, only a small percentage of study participants achieved high scores for knowledge, practice, and attitude in this study.
