Abstract

Diabetic foot ulcer (diabetic foot ulcer) is an injury entering through the profound vascular and collagenous (dermis) layers of the skin in diabetic patients. Helpless information by walking care and helpless foot care rehearses were distinguish as significant danger factors for foot issues in diabetes. The principle target of the investigation was to survey the effectiveness of topical insulin dressing versus saline dressing and analyze the degree of diabetic injury healing. Quasi-experimental with comparative research design was embraced for the investigation. Convenience sampling technique was utilized to choose 60 examples. Structured interview was used to collect background variable and Wagner diabetic wound assessment scale for assessing diabetic wound. The diabetic wound was dressed with topical insulin dressing and normal saline dressing for 6 days. The calculated paired 't' test value of t = 15.703 was found to be statistically highly significant at p<0.001 level whereas the calculated paired 't' test value of t = 3.247 was found to be statistically highly significant at p<0.01 level. There was significant that the topical insulin dressing is the more effective and improving the level of wound healing than normal saline dressing.
