This feasibility study investigated the intraobserver reliability and reproducibility of the validated Diabetic Foot Screening Tool to detect evidence of peripheral neuropathy and peripheral arterial disease in a homogenous sample of end-stage renal disease patients on haemodialysis therapy without a concomitant diagnosis of diabetes. Findings suggest that the Diabetic Foot Screening Tool reliably discriminated between end-stage renal disease patients presenting with and those without evidence of lower-limb-threatening risk factors. Further study is needed to determine whether these findings can be applied in the wider context of the haemodialysis population.
