Q-1)What is Diabetic Foot ?

A-1) Diabetic Foot is a complex of symptoms and signs which arise due to changes in the feet of persons who have Diabetes Mellitus for a long duration. These changes occur due to progressive loss of blood supply to the feet as a result of microangiopathy or macroangiopathy i.e. a diseased condition of either the small or larger blood vessels respectively. These vessels get progressively diseased due to the process of atherosclerosis which occurs at a faster rate in Diabetic individuals especially if the blood sugar levels are not within normal limits.These changes also occur in the blood vessels supplying the nerves called Vasa Nervosum.This leads to Neuropathy(disease of the nerves).The combined changes of angiopathy and neuropathy give rise to Diabetic Foot whose salient features are described below:


    Signs and Symptoms include :
  1. Tip top toes or hammer toes & disfigurement of the toes.
  2. Horny nails.
  3. Smooth shiny and dry skin.
  4. Loss of hair.
  5. Ulcers on the foot.
  6. Decreased skin temperature.
  7. Loss of sensation etc.
These changes can lead to corns, callouses, non-healing ulcers and trophic ulcers Gangrene is the most dreaded complication of Diabetic Foot.

Q-2)What is Gangrene ?

A-2)The death of a tissue due to loss of blood supply which is accompanied by superadded infection is called gangrene.

Q-3) What are the types of gangrene ?

A-3)Gangrene is basically of two types namely Dry gangrene and Wet gangrene. Dry gangrene is one which arises due to loss of arterial blood supply to the tissue or part. Wet gangrene is the condition which arise due to both the artery as well vein being blocked. This condition is often confused with a dry gangrene with superadded infection. There is a third type of gangrene which is considered as a wet gangrene by some and is called Gas Gangrene. This occurs mostly after accidents and in contaminated wounds. Here the superadded infection is due to spore forming Clostridia. This is a highly contagious infection.Gas gangrene is not treated at sai Diabetic Foot & Gangrene Hospital.

Q-4)Can Diabetes be cured by Dr. Prabhakar Shetty's Medicine ?

A-4)No, Diabetes Mellitus cannot be cured by Dr. Prabhakar Shetty's Medicine. Only the complications arising out of long standing Diabetes mellitus can cured by Dr. Shetty's medicine.Diabetes Mellitus is essentially treated by insulin therapy or oral hypoglycaemic agents(only NIDDM cases without infection).

Q-5) Can Diabetic Foot be prevented by Dr. Prabhakar Shetty's medicine and how is this achieved ?

A-5)Yes, Diabetic Foot can be prevented by Dr. Prabhakar Shetty's Medicine. This is possible because with every major blood vessel there are smaller collateral vessels which accompany them in a normal person these collateral vessels take over the work of the major vessels when the latter are blocked. In a person with long standing diabetes these Collateral Vessels get diseased and blocked. When the major blood vessels are blocked in such cases the collaterals cannot take over the work of providing blood supply and therefore Gangrene sets in. Dr. Shetty`s Oral Homoeopathic Medicine keeps the collateral vessels healthy and can thus prevent Diabetic Foot from occuring.

Q-6) Can Dr. Prabhakar Shetty's medicine open up the major blood vessels in case where they are blocked at one place or at multiple places ?

A-6)No, Dr. Prabhakar Shetty's Oral Homoeopathic Medicines do not open up the lumen of the blocked primary arteries like the Femoral, Popliteal or Dorsalis Pedis arteries in the eventuality of them being blocked. The medicines act on the collateral vessels and keep them healthy and patent till the time they take over the function of blood supply. New collateral vessels are also developed by the phenomenon of angiogenesis or neoangiogenesis which is demonstrated through serial Digital Subtraction Angiographies.

Q-7)In what type of Diabetic gangrene cases is Surgery Totally avoidable ?

A-7)Surgery is totally avoidable in diabetic dry gangrene without any superadded infection.

Q-8) What is amputation ?

A-8)Amputation is basically a life saving procedure wherein a part of the body which is grossly infected or gangrenous is cut off to prevent the infection or gangrene from spreading to the rest of the body.
