“Undefeeted” by Diabetes
Peter Allton, a Podiatrist with over 27 years’ experience, says: “I find it shocking and alarming that in 2015, one person every 20 seconds is undergoing a lower limb amputation because of their diabetes. Equally shocking, and yet exciting to me, is the fact that up to 85% of these could have been avoided. That is why I founded Undefeeted to have an impact on that statistic, one foot at a time.” As someone living with type 2 diabetes himself, Peter’s passion to make a difference was further fanned into flame when his daughter aged 11 was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. He is the clinical director of Circle Podiatry, the UK’s only multi-award winning private Podiatry brand, and the founder of Undefeeted.
