Diabetic Foot Ulcer & Its Types

A diabetic foot ulcer is one of the complications faced by patients who suffer from long-term diabetes. All diabetic patients are at risk of getting foot ulcers if their diabetes is not kept under control. Additional risk factors such as alcohol consumption, tobacco usage, and diabetes, could increase the likelihood of development as well. Diabetic patients are susceptible to lower extremity arterial disease which causes the poor blood circulation in the tissues. This results in the tissues breaking down, leaving the foot unprotected and susceptible to ulcers. Untreated ulcers can get infected and lead to conditions that are more severe.
There are different types or stages of diabetic conditions which cause diabetic foot ulcers. Identifying this is the first step to diabetic foot treatment.

  • Neuropathic foot is when peripheral diabetic neuropathy causes fissures, edema, and necrosis.

  • Ischemic ulcers are caused due to peripheral artery disease but not necessarily by peripheral diabetic neuropathy.

  • Neuroischemic foot is caused by occlusive vascular disease. In this case, the patient will have both diabetic neuropathy as well as ischemia.

The simplest treatment plan is called off-loading, which involves the removal or reduction of pressure off the wound by taking the weight off the foot. In some cases, antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent and control infections. Diabetic foot ulcer treatment also involves debridement, which is a medical procedure to remove dead or infected tissue that forms the ulcer. The debrided wound is covered with bandages which are changed every day. There are different types of dressings available to treat diabetic ulcers. 

    There are also certain surgical options to treat foot ulcers that are caused by poor blood circulation. Atherectomy is a surgical procedure that makes the arteries wider by clearing out plaque, cholesterol, and calcium. The surgery might be followed by angioplasty to keep blood vessels open.
