Diabetes and Wound Healing
This four-page handout educates people about problems with wound healing associated with diabetes. It explains that persons with diabetes have blood glucose (blood sugar) levels that are too high, which can slow healing and put them at risk for infection. It lists wound problems that persons with diabetes are at greater risk of incurring, and discusses what they can do to help, including ways to protect their skin, treat wounds, and eat a healthy diet. The document identifies those symptoms for which a doctor should be called.
