, if there is swelling of the legs and black. Have to be operated on or wait until it deflated?
Hello Evander! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
First, let me explain that there is no wet diabetes or dry diabetes. All diabetics can experience problems with blood vessels, especially in the ends of the hands and feet. These blood vessel disorders make patients with diabetes more susceptible to injury. If a wound has occurred, it is also difficult for the wound to heal because oxygen and nutrients from the blood are not properly supplied. Therefore, diabetic patients who experience wounds, including swelling in the legs that even turn black, should be taken to a doctor immediately. The doctor will perform an examination to determine whether the swelling is dangerous or not and whether there are signs of infection. The doctor will provide therapy in accordance with the conditions experienced. Avoid injuring the leg more by trying to hit, scratch, or heat the wound. Do not apply anything to the wound, as this can make the infection worse. Stay away from the patient from smoking because it can interfere with the healing process. Patients need to be given lots of protein, such as egg whites, fish, chicken, and beef to speed up the healing process.
That's all I can say. I hope this helps.
