Özet

Background: Diabetes mellitus (DM) is an endocrine disease characterized by metabolic abnormalities and long-term complications. The Achilles tendon (AT) plays an important role in foot biomechanics. We aimed to investigate the effect of DM on the Achilles tendon, which may contribute to long-term complications in the foot-ankle complex.
