Causes Of Diabetic Ulcers?
want to ask, why do sores in diabetes become necrotic? And why the wound that used to be an ulcer. Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Always high blood sugar in people with diabetes causes damage to the narrowing of small blood vessels, such as blood vessels that flow to the ends of the hands and feet, to the kidneys, to the eyes, to the brain, to the heart, etc. This narrowing of the arteries causes blood flow to these organs to become uneven and the organs can be damaged. Narrowing of the arteries in the legs for example will cause damage to the peripheral nerves in the legs (resulting in sensory disturbance in the legs, feet that often experience pins and needles or burning sensation, etc.), impaired wound healing, and easy infection if a wound occurs.
The factors above all contribute to the onset of diabetes feet. Sensory disturbance causes diabetics often can not feel if there is a wound in the foot (for example due to scratched stones or shoes, punctured by small pebbles, etc.). The wound is very susceptible to infection, infection and blood flow disorders cause these wounds become more difficult to heal. If not handled properly (handling the wound, controlling blood sugar, nutritional control, or infection control are not done together), the wound will get bigger (become ulcers) and skin tissue that is very damaged that does not get blood flow will again become necrotic tissue (dead tissue).
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
