What Causes Diabetic Ulcers?
A diabetic ulcer is a deterioration of the skin tissue of the foot region. The ulcer can form rapidly and can be painful and difficult to treat. Infection is a very frequent problem, so it is necessary to get an X-ray to ascertain whether there is any bone involvement when the ulcer is present. Some factors that cause diabetic ulcers include uncontrolled diabetes mellitus, vascular insufficiency, lack of sensation, chronic irritation from ill-fitting shoes and trauma.
