Right Hand Blisters When Blood Sugar Is High?
Hello, I’m a 26-year-old male, my blood sugar is high, 219, and a few days ago when it was high, my right hand collapsed and was injured, is this due to my high blood sugar? or is there another reason? and what should i do?
Hello Bekti, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
High blood sugar will not suddenly cause injury / infection without injury to the area first.
High blood sugar levels, especially in people with diabetes, can indeed cause an infection / injury to any part of the body (especially at the ends of the hands / feet) becomes more difficult to experience improvement because this makes the blood thicker so that the flow becomes less smoothly and added also because generally there is damage to the small blood vessels in the body. Both of these conditions make the process of inflammation and wound repair more difficult to occur so that infections and wounds can become more widespread and severe if not treated properly.
Even so, infection or injury can also make blood sugar continue to be high as long as it is not handled properly because even though the inflammatory reaction is not going well / optimally, the minimal inflammation reaction still occurs and stimulates the body to produce higher blood sugar.
Because you have high blood sugar levels and are currently injured, it is highly recommended to check the complaint further with a surgeon to determine what therapy you should get to break the circle of high blood sugar and this wound so that you can there is a repair in your wound.
In addition to going to a surgeon, you are also advised to continue to control your blood sugar and take blood sugar-lowering drugs in accordance with the doctor's advice that has been treating you to help prevent damage to your wound. Also make sure to continue to maintain cleanliness and treat your wound well (such as cleaning the wound with NaCl liquid, then dried and covered using streil gauze) to avoid worsening of the condition, and try not to re-injury to any area of the body.
I hope this helps.
