  • 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
