Re: Right knee problem

Lot's of patients have surgery that are diabetic. I am a wound spesensoredt also and see lot's of diabetics with uncontrolled sugars with wounds that do not heal. It's mainly because of the erratic levels of their sugars. Keep you sugars in really good "check" and you should not have any trouble healing. Have you had an A1C lately? It determines your sugar levels over the past 2-3 months. You want it to be less than 7%. Eat a healthy diet and keep your diabetes under STRICT control. Good luck!
