In this week's program, Dr. Reminga talks about diabetic wounds on the feet and ankles. Have you heard the saying "Time heals all wounds"? This may not be true for diabetic wounds however. That's right... A diabetic wound or ulceration is an open sore or wound that most often occurs on the bottom of the foot. Of those with diabetes, who develop a wound on the foot, some of those wounds will become non-healing wounds due to infection or a ulcer-related complication. Foot ulcers are a common complication of poorly controlled diabetes, they form as a result of skin tissue breaking down and exposing the layers underneath. They’re most common under the big toes and the balls of the feet.

In the United States, 29 million people have diabetes. Anyone who has diabetes can develop a foot ulcer. Dr. Reminga talks about the risk factor for developing a foot ulcer and who is likely to get them. He also discusses how foot ulcers start, what are the early signs to watch out for, and how foot ulcers are treated.

At Northern Foot Care Center, Dr. Reminga has developed a unique protocol when treating diabetic ulcers. It has been very effective in restoring blood flow and circulation to the affected area. Dr Reminga says, "Ulcers that were once thought to be non-restorative have completely turned around when this protocol was implemented. I would also like to say that this treatment does not require surgery or medications whose side effects can cause compounded problems for the diabetic patient." Listen to Dr. Reminga and his important message to diabetics.
