2Wounds That Will Not Heal
Another symptom of diabetes is wounds that take long to heal. High blood glucose levels leads to the narrowing of blood vessels and the arteries become stiff. As a result there is less production of red blood cells and the white blood cells cannot fight off infections effectively. Nerve damage is also related to diabetes, and when it happens a diabetic does not always sense when an infection has occurred. Always clean your wounds and don’t put pressure on it during the healing process.
