Is diabetes worsening your wound healing?

foot with bandageWhen you have diabetes, wound healing becomes a real challenge. With diabetes, your body has difficulty producing or using insulin, which is a key factor in converting sugar into energy. When sugar is unconverted, these could accumulate and lead to high blood sugar level.

If you have excessive sugar level, your immune system malfunctions making it difficult for your wounds to heal. Additionally, diabetes causes poor blood circulation on your legs, leading to episodes of foot ulcers.
