This study aims to determine the relationship between foot care knowledge and the risk of foot ulcers in Diabetes Mellitus (DM) patients. This type of research is quantitative using a cross-sectional design. The results showed that most DM patients had moderate knowledge (68.2%) with an average risk of foot injuries (63.5%). In conclusion, there is no significant relationship between knowledge about foot care and the risk of developing diabetic foot ulcers.
