This patient had a long medical history, poor pancreatic islet function, poor glycemic control, and severe diabetic foot ulceration. After receiving the consultation, Wang Juan learned that the patient’s blood sugar fluctuated greatly and his diet was irregular. In response to this situation, Wang Juan repeatedly explained to the patients that the dietary pattern of diabetic patients is the basis for good blood sugar control, and gave suggestions to improve the daily diet in combination with the patients’ eating habits. Coupled with a personalized treatment plan, the patient’s blood sugar and infection were quickly controlled.
The treatment of local wound dressing for diabetic foot gangrene is extremely important for the prognosis of the disease. Wang Juan often performs ulcer debridement and dressing change for this patient. In less than a month, the patient’s wound was basically healed, and a pennant was sent to him after discharge.
