Slow Healing Wounds and Diabetes


A wound is painful and sometimes unbearable, people with diabetes who have this have to deal with it for a long time. When a person has diabetes there is decreased blood flow, and the immune cells do not work correctly making it harder for the body to heal a wound. This may lead to amputation of the affected part, most commonly your foot because sometimes it gets neglected.

Nobody wants to lose anything, if you do not want to end this way, you need to make sure you will not have a wound. Do necessary steps such as washing and checking your feet every day, keeping your feet dry, and being careful when you are trimming your nails. If you do get a wound, go to your physician immediately to have it checked. Living with diabetes is hard, but living with an amputated
foot because of it is even harder.
