Unfortunately, diabetes is by far the #1 cause of leg amputations in the United States. Approximately 15% of people with diabetes will eventually develop a foot ulcer and up to 25% of those will need an amputation. 

Our office utilizes advanced wound care technology so diabetic ulcerations can heal faster and with reduced risk for further complications.  If you or a loved one has a foot or ankle wound, your podiatrists at Family Foot & Ankle Centers are here to help. With 3 convenient locations in Waxahachie, Ennis, and Corsicana, expert wound care is just a phone call away.  The good news is that diabetes foot ulcerations are both preventable and treatable.

Why Do People With Diabetes Get Foot Ulcers?

A diabetes foot ulcer is an open sore that develops on the foot.  People with diabetes have an increased risk for foot and ankle ulcers due to 2 main complications: Poor circulation and nerve damage (referred to as diabetic neuropathy). This means that many patients with diabetes have a loss of feeling in their feet and may not even know it. 

Foot ulcers develop due to this loss of sensation when combined with pressure or irritation on the the skin.  A shoe that is too tight, a small pebble in the shoe, or even an ingrown toenail may go unnoticed. 

Poor blood flow, known as vascular disease, can complicate a foot ulcer by robbing it of the blood delivered nutrients needed for healing. Since the cells responsible for fighting infection will also be decreased due to the lack of blood flow, it is common for these ulcers to become infected.

Your podiatrists at Family Foot & Ankle Centers have simple in-office tests for both peripheral neuropathy and vascular disease. These tests are quick, painless, and extremely accurate.

How Are Foot Ulcers Treated?

At Family Foot & Ankle Centers, your podiatrist’s main goal in the treatment of foot ulcers is to obtain complete healing as quickly as possible. The faster the ulcer heals, the less chance that it can become infected.  A treatment plan will be developed with your foot specialist that is designed specifically for you and your needs.

Successful treatment of diabetic ulcerations requires a team approach. Your primary care physician, or endocrinologist, will manage your blood glucose to enhance the rate of healing. Depending on the results of your vascular exam, an interventional cardiologist or vascular surgeon may be consulted to increase blood flow to the ulceration. Your foot doctor will trim the dead skin off of the ulceration (called wound debridement) and make sure that pressure is removed from the ulcer to allow it to heal faster.

A medication may be prescribed to apply to the ulcer daily to aid in healing and prevent infection. In some cases, wound care nurses may perform dressing changes at your home for convenience.
