POSTED ON January 22, 2018  - POSTED IN diabetic wound care

A new study provided insight into what type of exercise is most beneficial for diabetic wound healing.

Even a mild cut in the skin of a diabetic patient can turn into a serious wound. Clinicians offer several prevention methods to stop wounds from becoming chronic, reduce pain and avoid high treatment costs, such as protective shoes, healthy diet and regular exercise. Researchers continue to study the nuances of preventative and treatment methods to develop more comprehensive, effective solutions. The results from a recent study, published in Wounds, provided insight into what type of exercise is most beneficial for wound healing in diabetic patients.

Researchers have created a list of four keys to preventing diabetic foot ulcers.


The potential impact of a diabetic foot ulcer has been widely documented. Based on work that appeared in the European Journal of Vascular & Endovascular Surgery, researchers determined that 85 percent of all amputations performed on people with diabetes began with a foot ulcer. With that in mind, a four-pronged approach may be the key to preventing the ulcers and reducing the chances of complications.

Can the time of day a wound occurs affect the healing process? Research suggests it might be a factor.


In addition to where a wound is located and how it developed, researchers now also believe that the time of day you get your wound may have something to do with how it heals and the type of wound care you receive as well.

Researchers have found that vitamin D may aid in the healing of burn wounds and can reduce scarring.


To date, research has shown that vitamin D has benefits for the healing of diabetic foot ulcers. But scientists in the U.K. recently released the results of testing that show that it may also help in burn wound healing. The study of burn patients was conducted by the Institute of Inflammation and Aging in Birmingham, U.K., and was featured at the Society of Endocrinology’s annual conference in Harrogate.

Understanding wound types can help lead to using the right dressing.

The basic approach to wound care management is to keep the area moist – but not excessively so – to encourage the proper healing process, according to Medscape. But because there are different types of wounds, there are various forms of wound coverage needed. According to Wound Educators, there are more than 3,000 types of wound dressings.
