Abstract

Diabetes is previously known as the disease of the rich people, but now there is  no partiality between the rich and poor and it has become the third leading cause of  death. Diabetic Mellitus (DM) is a metabolic issue that is characteristics by  chronic hyperglycemia; it is a typical and conceivably persistent disease. The  aims of the present study to assess the effectiveness of insulin dressing of the diabetic foot ulcer among diabetic patients. A quasi-experimental research design with  purposive sampling technique was adopted to conduct a study among 30 diabetic foot ulcer patients. Demography data was collected and wound was measured and insulin dressing was done. After one week the wound was measured. Confidentiality was maintained throughout the procedure. The collected data were analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Among 30 samples pretest mean score of wound healing among patients with diabetic foot ulcer in the topical insulin dressing was 2.67±0.66 and the post test mean score was 1.43±0.57. The calculated paired ‘t’ test  value of t = 15.703 was found to be statistically highly significant at p<0.001 level.  The above finding clearly infers that topical insulin dressing to patients with diabetic foot ulcer had significant effect which resulted in the improvement in the level of  wound healing among patients with diabetic foot ulcer.
