How is a diabetic foot ulcer treated?
The fundamental goal of foot ulcer treatment is to achieve healing as quickly as feasible. The faster the wound heals, the less likely an infection will occur.
There are numerous vital aspects to consider when treating a diabetic foot ulcer:
2.Taking the strain off the area is referred to as “off-loading.”
3.Debridement is the removal of dead skin and tissue.
4.Using medication or dressings to treat the ulcer
5.Managing blood glucose levels and other health issues
6.Not all ulcers are infected; however, if your podiatric physician identifies an infection, you must follow a treatment plan that includes antibiotics, wound care, and maybe hospitalization.
