Diabetic Living - - YOUR HEALTHY LIFE -

Re­searchers at North­west­ern Uni­ver­sity in Illi­nois have cre­ated a ban­dage that can help speed up the heal­ing process of foot sores among peo­ple with di­a­betes. Ap­plied in liq­uid form, as it reaches body tem­per­a­ture it so­lid­i­fies into a gel in the ex­act shape of the in­jury. They found this new ban­dage heals wounds 33 per cent faster than reg­u­lar ban­dages in peo­ple with di­a­betes. More re­search is to be car­ried out.
