Now Offering Advanced Wound Care for Diabetics
Diabetics are at high risk of developing foot ulcers and infections. Ulcers on the feet can lead to amputation if left untreated. Wound care for diabetics is a specialized treatment that aims to prevent and treat wounds in people with diabetes.
Diabetes is a disease that causes high blood sugar levels, which can damage many parts of the body, including your nerves, heart and circulation system. It can also cause problems with your eyesight and kidneys. When you have diabetes, it means your body doesn’t produce enough insulin or it can’t use the insulin it makes properly. This leads to high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). Your body gets rid of this extra glucose by either producing more urine or storing it as fat. In this process, wounds may develop on any part of the body as a result of an injury or infection.
Diabetics are at higher risk of developing foot ulcers and infections because they tend to have poor circulation in their feet due to nerve damage caused by their disease. This means they don’t feel pain as quickly as those without diabetes do when they get injured or infected.
