Quick tips for diabetic foot ulcer wound care
If you have diabetes, you know you're more prone to injury than the average patient. Foot ulcers are especially common for those with diabetes – and can unfortunately lead to hospitalization or infection. In fact, 14 to 24 percent of patients with diabetes who develop a foot ulcer will need an amputation, according to American Podiatric Medical Association. The reason foot ulcers tend to prey on diabetic patients is because the condition causes reduced circulation in the extremities, often leading to neuropathy. This lack of feeling makes it difficult for diabetic patients to recognize the pain before the sore be...
