“Ulcers occur most often on the ball of the foot or on the bottom of the big toe,” Says Dale Brink, DPM. “Ulcers on the sides of the foot are usually due to poor-fitting shoes. Even though some ulcers do not hurt, every ulcer should be seen by your healthcare provider right away.” With the correct treatment and recommended lifestyle changes, many people with diabetes are able to avoid the most serious consequences of foot problems – severe infection and, in the most extreme cases, amputation of a limb.

Dr. Dale Brink

“Diabetic wound care is a major challenge,” Dr. Brink added. “The disease causes poor blood flow to the extremities. Increasing oxygenation through HBOT brings white blood cells to the wound and causes new blood vessels to grow in the area, which aids in healing.”
