In an article recently released in The International Wound Journal (read below), a group of 768 diabetics with heal ulcers (a type of non-healing ulcer of the foot) where followed to their eventual outcome. An astounding 25% died with 16% more needing major surgery including amputation and 19% never healed. Only 58% ever recovered, but from previous literature we know that the reoccurrence rate is up to 80%. This death rate is worse than most cancers!

This is a dismal outlook for these patients that will only get worse as the explosion in diabetes in our society continues. These ulcers are unfortunately very common and are a reflection of poor vascular flow combined with a neuropathy common to diabetics. The critical feature of all this impaired oxygen flow to tissue causing it to break down. These heal ulcers can be excessively nasty looking with exposed bone and tendon. They are also at high risk of infection that can be impossible to treat requiring amputation. Antibiotics can’t work if there is no blood flow to reach the site.

 

The most common treatments are dressing changes, with daily nursing visits, keeping the area away from trauma and pressure (that usually means being confined to a wheelchair) and the very expensive hyperbaric oxygen chamber, which costs $9000 for the first 20 treatments (most require many more than this). All of these supports are labour intensive, therefore expensive and have an unacceptably high failure rate.


Pure Form Omega is the only product clinically shown to improve wound healing (University of Miami Study) with improvement in arterial health (IOWA Study). This combination uniquely addresses the 2 biggest issues diabetics face; poor tissue oxygenation and poor arterial health. Pure Form Omega is an organic, plant-based, combination oils that are cold-pressed, giving the optimized ratio of Omega-6 and -3 for human physiology. It is pressed under a blanket of nitrogen and there is a nitrogen bubble in each capsule to ensure freshness without the use of antioxidants or preservatives.
