For those with diabetes, the approach to wounds and wound care differs from the rest of the non-diabetic population in the attention needed to promote healing. Diabetics understand that all wounds have a risk of moving from small issues to dangerous, life-threatening issues very quickly. Many people with diabetes have peripheral neuropathy, a condition that causes some injuries — skin cuts and blisters — to go unnoticed until they have become more serious and require more intensive interventions for care. Even insect bites can present a unique challenge for diabetics.

What Causes Wound Healing Challenges in Diabetics?

Because the common factor in all type of diabetes is irregular, inadequate or non-existent insulin production needed to break down blood glucose levels, diabetics often have abnormal levels of blood sugar present in their bodies. High blood sugar (hyperglycemia) can cause rapid moisture loss, narrowing of the blood vessels and neuropathy, which is a nerve condition that affects the feeling throughout the body — particularly the limbs. These factors combined with blood circulation challenges as well as immune system deficiencies can all wreak havoc on wound care and effective healing for those with diabetes.
