Application

People suffering from diabetes need to be extra careful not to injure themselves as their wounds tend to take longer to heal and often result in complicated or non-healing wounds. Amputations of limbs due to non-healing wounds are not uncommon.

Cerdak has proved to be very useful for diabetics with wounds:

  • Early detection of wounds, even a superficial scratch breaking the skin, is very important. The sooner Cerdak treatment is started, the easier wounds will heal. Insignificant wounds will not necessarily heal without any treatment – too many diabetics realize this too late. 
  • Blood sugar levels must be tested regularly and kept within acceptable limits. 
  • Before starting treatment with Cerdak, a wound should be cleaned and if necessary, debrided. The wound should be inspected by a medical/health professional to determine whether an infection is present, which should then be treated. 
  • Pressure points should be eliminated to increase blood supply to the wound.
