Diabetic foot ulcers

What are diabetic foot ulcers?

Diabetes affects about 7 million people in Germany, and about 15% of people with diabetes suffer from diabetic foot ulcers. In diabetes, abnormal blood sugar levels gradually damage the nerves in the lower leg, leading to foot sensation loss.

This nerve damage combined with reduced or poor blood flow to the foot (also due to diabetes) means that ulcers develop more frequently than in the general population.

Diabetes often slows down the healing process of wounds and ulcers, making them more susceptible to infection.

Unfortunately, due to the impaired healing process, diabetic foot ulcers remain a chronic health problem for many patients, significantly impacting their quality of life.
