Abstract

CASE STUDY OF DIABETIC WOUND TREATED WITH SUGAR PASTE – AN OBSERVATIONAL STUDY

ABSTRACT

Management of diabetic wounds was always a big task to the physician despite of advances in treatments. The evidence for many treatments is lacking, and high costs as well as clinical experience remain essential permissive factors for the success of the interventions. The ability to perform a comprehensive foot examination and to monitor changes is becoming increasingly important for diabetes patients. However, research in wound healing and therapeutic modalities can complement clinical management in accurate evaluation, risk stratification, and healing both acute as well as chronic wounds. Organized prevention efforts coupled with timely and aggressive interventions when needed can improve patient outcomes and reduce amputation rates. The rationale for the use of sugar has been presented by multiple reports documenting sugar’s antimicrobial effect and the ability to reduce wound exudate, odor, and edema. However, the evidence is lacking in the cellular and molecular interactions between sugar and the wound environment. More research is needed to evaluate if sugar is able to attenuate the impaired wound healing of diabetes patients. A prospective trial of sugar for the treatment of diabetic ulcers would also help to answer the question of whether sugar is effective for healing diabetic ulcers as well as decreasing hospital stays and costs.

Keywords: Diabetic Wounds, Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU), Sugar paste, Diabetic care.
