Those who have Diabetes are susceptible to problematic wound healing and require close monitoring. Several factors control wound healing in a diabetic patient and may include blood glucose levels, poor circulation, diabetic neuropathy, immune system deficiency and infection. According to diabetes.org in 2015, 30.3 million Americans, or 9.4% of the population, had diabetes and approximately 1.25 million American children and adults have type 1 diabetes. In additions, of the 30.3 million adults with diabetes, 7.2 million were undiagnosed. Foot ulcers are the most common among people with diabetes.
Many of the patients I have treated at the Eustache Institute have been placed on effective treatment plans that have a high success rate. The treatment plan includes hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), Neurofeedback therapy and a nutrition plan. HBOT aids in the healing process because our blood will carry the pure oxygen throughout our body and our organs, helping to fight bacteria while stimulating the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing. Stimulating damaged cells increases the growth of new blood and mobilizes the body’s stem cells. The personalized nutritional program helps maintain a healthy BMI and glucose levels, and neurofeedback therapy will help with weight management and if someone has a smoking addition, both of which can have a negative impact on cardiovascular health and circulation.
It’s important to raise awareness about this method of treatment, especially to those who have diabetes. For the past fifty years this method of treatment, which is approved by the FDA in numerous cases, has effectively treated people with various symptoms, and sadly, Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment and the beneficial healing process it provides is still relatively unknown to a majority of people. Given these points, if you’re interested in learning more about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), please contact my office to arrange for a consultation.
