Diabetic Wound Care

Foot ulcers or open sores affect almost 85 percent of diabetic patients, however, these wounds can be preventable to avoid amputations and worsening of symptoms. 

What causes foot uclcers?

Paitents using insulin are at higher risk of getting these kinds of wounds. Being overweight and substance abuse can increase the development of the foot ulcers and prolong healing too.
