Hello Anissa, thanks for the question.
Gangrene is a condition in which body tissues experience death due to oxygen supply or reduced blood flow to the tissue. Gangrene can be caused by damage to related blood vessels, a history of diabetes, tissue damage due to germ infection, and so forth. The risk of this tissue death will increase in people with smoking habits, a history of hypertension, alcohol consumption habits, a history of yourself or family with diabetes, and so forth. Gangrene that arises due to diabetes is called diabetic gangrene, diabetes will cause the condition of blood vessels vulnerable to damage so that oxygen supply is reduced and a high risk of infection. Usually characterized by wounds that do not heal, smell, wet, blackish wound tissue, and usually hypesthesia or sense of taste decreases. The tissue most commonly affected is the peripheral area / end of the body such as the foot or hand. If the cause of the disease is not resolved, then the body parts that experience tissue death can expand and get worse. Therefore, it is better to check with a surgeon or internist in advance to find out the cause of the condition. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination and additional examinations such as blood tests, EKG, etc. to overcome the condition. Handling will be adjusted to the condition of gangrene, if it is heavy enough the doctor may recommend the procedure of amputation or cutting the gangrene network so that it does not spread. It is better to avoid the risk factors as mentioned above, stabilize blood sugar, keep clean the wound area so that it does not get worse, use footwear made from thick, avoid cigarettes and alcohol, carry out regular checks to the doctor, and consume drugs recommended by the doctor regularly.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
