What are Diabetic Ulcers?

Diabetic ulcers, also known as foot ulcers, are a common complication when patients with diabetes are not managing their diet, exercise, and insulin treatments properly. As a result, the skin on the big toes and balls of the feet begin to break down and create large, open wounds. Because all patients with diabetes have the potential to develop foot ulcers throughout their lives, it's important they put extra care in their foot and physical health by eating well, using medical-grade skincare products, exercising often, and performing regular checks on their toes and the bottoms of their feet.

How Do I Know if I Have Diabetic Ulcers?

Common symptoms of diabetic ulcers that many of our patients find they experience include:

  • Swollen feet
  • Irritated toes and feet
  • Drainage
  • Redness
  • Unusual odor from the feet
  • Stains on socks or insides of the shoes

What Causes Diabetic Ulcers?

Diabetic foot ulcers are most commonly caused by nerve damage, high blood sugar, and poor circulation to the lower extremities. Patients find that long-term nerve damage and peripheral neuropathy may contribute to the onset of diabetic ulcers, as the feet aren't as active or checked as often as they should be. Patients may also notice diabetic foot ulcers begin to appear when they are not properly managing their insulin, diet, and exercise routine.
