Core Tip Many authorities have identified independent risk factors for diabetes-related amputations, but cultural factors remain underappreciated. We coined the term “Caribbean Substitution Culture” to describe the attitude of patients with diabetic foot infections in which they refuse to access medical care, instead voluntarily choosing to substitute “bush medicines” or other alternative therapies in the place of conventional treatment. We discuss the issues related to the Caribbean Substitution Culture, including the demographics of the population at risk, the alternative therapeutic practices and potential public health strategies to combat this practice.
