Diabetic Lower Extremity Wounds
Diabetes is a metabolic disease in which the body’s inability to produce any or enough insulin causes elevated levels of glucose in the blood. High blood glucose levels make it difficult for wounds to heal and have a higher risk of being infected.
Diabetic ulcers are chronic, complex, or problem wounds of the legs and feet. Diabetic ulcers that fail to heal in three months are usually considered chronic. Some take years to heal or never do.
The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to treat diabetic lower extremity wounds accelerates healing, reduces amputation rates, and can dramatically improve quality of life.
HBOT for Diabetic Lower Extremity Wounds
HBOT benefits patients with diabetic lower extremity wounds in the following ways:
- Helps fight infections
- Reduces pain
- Creates new blood vessels
- Speeds up repair and recovery with the boost of oxygen
- Promotes stem cell mobilization
- Reduces inflammation
