Diabetes: How can I deal with foot ulceration?

What kind of Prevention is possible?

Pressure points and foot ulcers occur most frequently with diabetes and present a great challenge in healing and offloading sensitive feet.

After observation of the ulceration and treatment of the wound it is of utmost importance to care for pressure relief and offloading by means of an individually adjustable device. The intention is to pay attention to the improvement of the healing porcess as well as to the restoration of the patient's mobility.

DARCO therefore has especially focused on diabetic foot and ankle care. Our devices help to prevent the development of wounds and ulcers as well as to encourage and fasten the healing process of existing wounds.

We would be pleased to inform you on our different diabetic foot care orthetics with regard to application and handling. Please refer to the product navigation on the left, where you will find detailed information on our single products.

The Diabetic Foot

- What is that?

Diabetes mellitus means that the human body suffers from a deterioration of metabolic quality. In the long run an elevated blood sugar level will damage all blood vessels of the human body. It is presumed that after a period of 10 years the metabolism might suffer from secondary damages due to its bad status.

About 20 to 30 % of the patients have developed a diabetic neuropathy (nerve disease) occuring with the illness of a diabetic foot. One of five up to one of ten diabetic patients is suffering from neuropathy. The consequence might be amputation.

Prior to the development of ulcers, a neuropathic foot can be recognized due to its typical warning signs encompassing an unusual dryness of the foot's skin, which usually feels sligthly moist and smooth. Firm calluses at pressure points might also be a warning.

In summary, the neuropatic foot is characterized by:

· Reduced pain and temperature sensation · Reduced sensibility · Hurting or burning feet · Ulceration at the plantar surface of the foot · Calluses · Warm and rosy feet · Water retention (edema)

And last but not least: As the human kind has only two feet available, especially diabetics have to pay attention. This does not only include correct foot care, but also the right shoe. By regularly visiting a specialist and permanent self-control you are able to improve your qualitiy of life extensively.
