Cuts burn and bruises happen everybody, and they’re part of life. But if you have diabetes, these minor injuries could turn into a much larger problem. Many people with diabetes can develop wounds that can be slow to heal or not heal at all. These slow to heal or never healing wounds can put people with diabetes at a higher risk for developing infections.

When people have diabetes, they experience:

  • Reduced production of growth and healing hormones
  • A decreased production of new blood vessels
  • A weakened skin barrier
  • Reduced collagen production
