What Is A Diabetic Wound?

Diabetic wound is the most common chronic wound. As a result of narrowed blood vessels, diabetic wound healing is impaired because less oxygen can reach the wound and the tissues do not heal as quickly. Also, high blood sugar destroys nerves, so patients are less sensitive to pain. With this loss of sensation, patients do not feel developing blisters, infections, or existing wound changes. Therefore, wound healing is complicated not only by the fact that patients do not feel wounds as they occur, but they also have no pain to alert them that a wound is getting worse. Moreover, impaired sweating, dry and cracked skin, toenail infections, and foot deformities are more commonly found in people with diabetes, increasing the risk of a bacterial infection.

The Risks Of Diabetic Wound

Tend to become chronic wound – especially when blood sugar level is higher than normal. 

Healing is slow. People with diabetes are more likely to develop peripheral vascular disease. This causes your blood vessels to narrow, which reduces blood flow to the limb. As a result, less oxygen can reach the wound and the tissues do not heal as quickly.

Peripheral neuropathy – Patients may not be able to feel wounds when they occur.

Foot deformity – Calluses occur more often and build up faster on the feet of people with diabetes. Calluses, if not trimmed, get very thick, break down, and turn into ulcers.

Damage to autonomic nerve fibers – leads to dry skin and loss of sweating.

Amputation – A wound that does not heal can quickly become life-threatening. If the wound does not respond to treatment, such as with a severe or extensive diabetic foot ulcer, amputation may be necessary.

Treatment

Standard wound care treatment as recommended by a specialist

Control/correct causes of diabetic wound such as high blood sugar level, peripheral vascular disease, neuropathy, proper shoes, high pressure areas

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) – enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. This increases tissue oxygen availability and promote healing. Patients will receive treatment in HBOT chamber around an hour and a half per day.
