    Released November 15, 2012 - Chronic wounds such as foot ulcers are a common problem for diabetics and are the cause of more than 80 percent of the lower leg amputations in these patients. There is currently no effective way to improve healing of these types of wounds, but new research may offer some hope. The study has found that diabetic rats on a specific type of high protein diet showed better wound healing compared to rats fed either a standard diet or other high protein foods.
