Ayurvedic Treatment For Diabetic Wounds Hyderabad
A non-healing or chronic wound is defined as a wound that shows little or no improvement after four weeks or does not heal in eight weeks. A non-healing wound poses the risk of infection, which can lead to a more serious condition, possibly resulting in the loss of a limb.
Some of the most common areas for non-healing wounds are the lower extremities such as feet, ankles, heels and calves. For those unable to walk, common places for non-healing wounds are hips, thighs and buttocks.
When it comes to wound healing, it’s all about blood supply. Blood brings oxygen, plasma, platelets and a host of other nutrients to help the wound heal. People with diabetes, heart disease, existing infections or lung disease have difficulty getting oxygen-rich blood to their wound, especially if the wound is located in a lower extremity, such as a foot or ankle. People who eat poorly, are alcoholics or smoke may also have problems getting adequate blood flow to a wound. Without adequate blood flow to a wound, tissue dies in a process called necrosis or gangrene.
