From the 2008 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System:
About how many times in the past 12 months has a health professional checked your feet for any sores or irritations?
Variable Name: FEETCHK
Have you ever been told by a doctor that you have diabetes? (If "Yes" and respondent is female, ask "Was this only when you were pregnant?" If respondent says pre-diabetes or borderline diabetes, use response code 4.)
Variable Name: DIABETE2
Persons are considered to have diabetes if they had ever been told by a doctor or health professional that they have diabetes or sugar diabetes. Women who report that the only time they have been diagnosed with diabetes was during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) are excluded. Persons who responded pre-diabetes or borderline are counted also excluded. Persons are considered to have had a foot examination if their feet had been checked one or more times in the past 12 months.
