The purpose of the study is to evaluate the overall burden to the participant (economic, quality of life, patients satisfaction and freedom from side effects) when treating Gram positive infections of the foot in diabetic adults with daptomycin versus vancomycin.
1. to compare the overall economic burden of therapy of a daptomycin vs. a vancomycin based antibiotic regimen for diabetic foot infections in the outpatient setting
2. to compare Quality of Life and patient satisfaction among recipients of a daptomycin vs. a vancomycin based regimen
3. to compare the safety and tolerance (adverse experiences) of daptomycin vs. vancomycin based regimens
4. to compare the efficacy (complete resolution of infection) of daptomycin vs. vancomycin based regimens

Common foot problems in persons with DIABETES MELLITUS, caused by any combination of factors such as DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES; PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASES; and INFECTION. With the loss of sensation and poor circulation, injuries and infections often lead to severe foot ulceration, GANGRENE and AMPUTATION.
Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.
