Healing Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Diabetic foot ulcers are open wounds that develop because of diabetes-related damage to the nerves and blood vessels in the feet. These wounds heal slowly, and need to be treated promptly to reduce the potential for infection, which can lead to very serious problems including amputation. Researchers at the University of Leeds in England evaluated approximately 300 patients with infected foot ulcers. They found that 17 percent needed part or all of their foot amputated within one year. Of the other 250 patients, only 45 foot ulcers that healed within a year.
