Hand Wound Treatment With 500 Blood Sugar
a solution for wounds on the fingers that are already swollen and pus, how come? but the condition of the patient with 500 blood sugar …
Hello Sulistianingsih, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Diabetes mellitus / DM is a chronic disease characterized by high blood sugar / glucose levels. Glucose is the main source of energy in the body. DM can not be cured, but the disease can be controlled with a healthy diet and drugs that aim to maintain glucose levels to remain normal. If not controlled sugar levels that are too high can endanger the patient.
Broadly speaking diabetes is divided into two types namely type 1 and 2. diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is caused by damage to pancreatic beta cells so that insulin is not produced which causes high glucose in the blood. Whereas type 2 diabetes occurs because insulin receptors become insensitive, so sugar cannot be absorbed into the body.
Responding to complaints that occur in your case, a wound that is difficult to heal is one of the signs and symptoms of diabetes, the wound is infected with bacteria so that pus appears. But what is even more worrying is the blood sugar level which is at 500 mg / dL because it can cause complications in the form of diabetic ketoacidosis, and hyperglycemic nonketotic hyperosmolar (HHNK) if the sugar level continues to rise. I can't even guarantee that this has not happened yet because of the complaint you mentioned is only a wound. For this reason, I advise you to go to the emergency room if the patient's condition is dangerous, such as consciousness has started to fall, restlessness, breathing smells of nail polish (acetone), dehydration, etc. But if the patient's condition is still stable you can take him to a doctor's practice in a clinic or health center and undergo routine and regular treatment for life.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
