Home care for diabetic wounds


If you develop a diabetic wound or foot ulcer, the doctor will probably clean it through a process called debridement. He/she will bandage it before you discharging from the hospital. For optimum healing, you must take proper care of the diabetic wound.

Home care for diabetic wounds
  • Keep the blood sugar levels under control. Working closely with an endocrinologist to control blood sugar levels will promote healing and reduce the risk of further complications
  • Clean the wound daily with antiseptic water. Keep it clean and bandage as per requirement
  • Good nutrition provides what your body needs for a faster healing of the wound. Avoid added sugars, processed food, and fast food to maintain healthy glucose levels
  • The use of hydrogen peroxide, betadine and whirlpools are not recommended. Never leave the wound open to the air, as the bacteria can easily multiply and cause further complications
  • There must be an adequate circulation of air. Your podiatric will determine the circulation levels with non-invasive methods
  • Use special socks or dressing material to keep the pressure off the wound

The healing time of diabetic wounds depends on several factors such as - the location and size of the wound, blood circulation, swelling, glucose levels, and wound care. Healing may take a few weeks or a month.
