Does intensive glycaemic control promote healing in diabetic foot ulcers? A feasibility study
from BMJ Open
One in four diabetes patients will develop a foot ulcer over their lifetime. The role of glycemic control in the healing of foot ulcers in diabetes patients is not supported by randomized controlled trial data. The objective of this study was to determine the feasibility of an RCT of glycemic control with intensive insulin therapy in diabetic foot ulcer, by assessing: entry criteria, fasting capillary blood glucose medication satisfaction and sensitivity of different ulcer-healing endpoints to glycemic control.
