Diabetic Wound Care

Q: What causes ulceration and slow–healing wounds in a person with diabetes?

A: High levels of blood glucose caused by diabetes can, over time, affect the nerves (neuropathy) and can lead to poor blood circulation making it hard for blood (needed for skin repair) to reach areas of the body affected by sores or wounds. Always see your doctor if an ulcer appears, especially if it does not heal on its own.
