Diabetic Foot Ulcers Diagnosis

Diabetic Foot Ulcer Diagnosis

Diabetic foot ulcers are a result of broken or damaged skin in the diabetic patient. Due to the decreased blood flow associated with diabetes, injuries to the feet struggle to heal.

Lack of sensation in the foot can be also be a problem as the diabetic patient may not immediately be aware there is an injury present and a diabetic ulcer may occur as a result of this.

It is important that diabetic patients pay special attention to their feet and have them checked by a healthcare professional least one a year or seek immediate medical attention for any injuries causing concern.
