If you have diabetes, all wounds should be taken seriously. Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists provide highly effective diabetic wound care at all of our podiatric office locations including Elgin, Huntley, and Chicago.
Diabetes can cause a number of complications. Sometimes this includes make it harder for your wounds to heal properly. Wounds may also worsen or be prevented from healing due to complications such as weakened immune system, nerve damage, or narrow arteries. Your body's natural defenses may be down, you may not feel how infected a wound really is, or you may not be receiving enough blood flow to the wound area in order to promote healing.
Have your foot and ankle specialist check any minor skin problems or redness you may be experiencing before they turn into larger wound problems. Its much easier to treat and heal a wound at the onset. Another advantage to seeing your podiatrist is that you will receive professional recommendations on how to take care of and prevent future diabetic wounds.
