A Wound On The Leg That Doesn’t Heal And Is Getting Bigger?
I once checked my blood sugar, the results were illegible, r nSkrg I have a wound on my leg and it hasn’t been healed for almost a month, at first it was small and eventually it got wider, does this include diabetes wounds and if so how do I handle it?
The existence of a wound that doesn't heal is not always caused by diabetes, other factors that can also cause a similar condition are infection, constantly experiencing new trauma to the wound (such as experiencing pressure, impact), impaired blood flow, and lack of nutrition. needed by the body to repair damaged tissue.
To be able to confirm someone has diabetes or not, a doctor needs to do an examination first. Because diabetes cannot be confirmed from just one information. The doctor needs to know the complaints and symptoms experienced by the patient, then perform a basic health examination, and be assisted by supporting examinations. So when getting the results of blood sugar lab tests alone does not make the person 100% diabetic, the results obtained need to be compared with clinical symptoms and other test results.
What kind of blood sugar examination did Perri do, whether it was an examination by taking blood from the fingertip and placing it on a "stick" in a small digital device. If so, then the examination uses a "portable" measuring device, this tool usually has a minimum and maximum value to detect sugar levels. So if the result is too low or too high, then if it turns out that your blood sugar level when checked is too low or high it can cause the result to not be a number. Therefore, the condition of diabetes cannot be ascertained only from the information that Perri provides.
Perri is advised to consult a surgeon so that he can get proper treatment for his wound, because if left untreated the wound can cause more extensive and severe tissue damage. Perri need not worry, because consulting a surgeon is not always sure about surgery, the surgeon needs to assess the severity of the wound and whether there are complications or complicating factors that prevent the wound from healing. Handling can later be with medication alone, or if it is heavy it may be necessary to clean the wound until the removal of a little damaged tissue so that the healing process can take place properly.
