Abstract

Diabetes is considered as ‘ice burg’ of diseases as only 1/3rd of its manifestations can be made out clinically, though the exact cause is not known following are the theories put forth to explain diabetes mellitus - Genetic factor, Life style disorder, Autoimmune cause. Slight injury to glucose laden tissue will cause infection which is precipitated by an ulcer and it tends to a state of non - healing. Main stay of treatment includes antibiotics, debridement, local wound care. Inspite of these treatments there is less reduction in the statistics of diabetic foot complications and amputations. In Sushrutha Samhitha we get the most scientific approach for the management of Vrana, where Sushrutha has mentioned 60 Upakrama’s (modalities of treatment) of which Avachoornana (dusting) is one modality, seen to be effective in the management of diabetic non healing ulcers (Madhu Mehaja Dusta Vrana).
