Blood glucose level plays an important role in terms of wound healing. The two hormones, Growth hormone (GH) and Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1) are involved in wound healing process which is affected by the blood glucose levels.
Mechanisms of high blood glucose in Peripheral Neuropathy and wound healing process
- Insulin resistance happens when the cells unable to react towards the insulin, therefore, uptake of glucose into cells are affected.
- Uncontrolled blood glucose affects the hormones involved in wound healing.
- Left untreated, infection may contribute to the risk of developing gangrene, sepsis or a bone infection, as well as amputation.
GTF and wound healing
- Chromium is one of the most important trace elements in wound healing as it enhances protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism.
- Hence, glucose is converted into energy for conducting cellular functions, blood glucose is then regulated and increases cell metabolism.
Benefits of GT&F Milk in wound healing process
- Besides that, GTF-chromium also stabilizes GH and IGF-1 level, thus enhances wound healing process.
- Lactoferrin in GTF has shown to improves wound healing with restoration of normal dermal architecture, enhances body immune system and protecting body cells from being damaged.
- At the same time, Amino acids aids in wound healing process by promoting tissue repairing, and Vitamin B-complex protects the nerve tissues from damage.
