What is a diabetic foot ulcer?
Having diabetes raises the chances of getting diabetic foot ulcers, which can take a long time to heal. Diabetes harms the nerves and blood vessels in your feet, making injuries more likely and slowing down healing. These wounds are often in areas that bear a lot of pressure, like the bottom of the foot, and can be painless, making them easy to miss. Problems like poor blood sugar control, nerve issues, and blood vessel problems contribute to these wounds. Taking care of your diabetes and feet is essential to prevent and manage these issues.
How to know if your foot need care.
It’s crucial to seek help promptly if you notice any concerning signs related to your diabetic foot ulcer. Look out for additional drainage, redness, heightened warmth, or swelling around the wound. A strong odor, pus, fever, chills, increased firmness around the wound, or changes in ulcer color (such as very white, blue, or black) are also indicators that require immediate attention. Increased pain is another warning sign. Paying close attention to these symptoms seeking professional help promptly ensures proper care and reduces the risk of complications associated with diabetic foot ulcers, visit Jovive Wound Care today.
