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 in people with diabetes. 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 to treat diabetic lower extremity wounds accelerates healing, reduces amputation rates, and can dramatically improve quality of life.
