TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Floridant -- Diabetic ulcers, neurogenic ulcers, are wounds that occur due to a cut that does not heal properly due to the effects of diabetes. Diabetic ulcers are wounds that do not heal in the correct way and become infected due to the high sugar levels in an individual's blood. These ulcers can produce symptoms of swelling, pus, foul odor, and discoloration. The high sugar levels cause damage to nerves and blood vessels which causes a slower process of wound healing.

With the nerves being damaged due to the high blood sugar levels, a person is unable to feel physical pain which makes them unaware of any cut or wound. This leads to the cut or wound going unnoticed and ultimately untreated. This slow process of healing makes an individual more prone to infection. Diabetes is also linked to peripheral arterial disease or "PAD" which is a condition that lessens blood flow to the legs and feet.

Diabetic ulcers usually occur in the feet and legs but also can be found in the folds of skin and the abdominal area. These wounds are serious because they can lead to infections that are difficult to treat and can produce gangrene. Once a diabetic ulcer has reached a state of gangrene the only option for treatment is amputation.

WCRx Clinic Wound Care Program in Tallahassee can help cure people with diabetic ulcers by using Amniotic Tissue Products. Amniotic Tissue Products, or allografts, are human amniotic fluids/ amniotic membrane tissues that have been minutely configured to a liquid or patch. These can be applied on or around the wound and act as a protectant in order to nourish and heal the wound. When used as a biological dressing, Amniotic membranes help wound healing by acting as a foundation for the re-growth of soft tissue.

Amniotic tissue products are 100% natural and are actually found in the body with no added chemicals. This procedure does not require surgery and has been proven to have an 85% success rate.
