Diabetes foot ulcer

Posted by Jody on May 06, 2002 at 19:58:54:

My husband has diabetes and poor circulation in his legs and feet. He has developed a ulcer on his second toe that just won't heal. The doctor has treated him with antibiotics and neosporin but it isn't healing. Do you have any suggestions??? We are desperate.
Thanks Jody

Have you gone to a wound care center. There is so much advanced therapies. It is a tough situation. I work in
dialysis, so I have seen problems like this with our
diabetic patients.

Hi, Jody.

As soon as I learned to offer my patients Chelation Therapy, I never had another diabetic foot ulcer that did not heal.

This worked so well that I had a number of patients who came to me having had amputation recommended that also cleared up. They still have their extremities 20 years later.

See the chelation archives and the home page.

Let us know how he does.

Walt

Thanks so much for your reply. We live in the Boise Idaho area and would be very much interested in any information you may have on someone in our area who does chelation therapy.
Thanks again

Jody

look for a wound care center in your area to get him over this initial epsode of non-healing...neosporin will not help. it can become gangrenous in a snap...get it healed first...then look for other preventitive therapy. Non healing wounds need special attention depending on if they are weeping, dry, deep, involve vascular areas...which you do not want to happen, the infection can become systemic, seek assistance at a wound care center... a diabetic too
