Diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) are among the many problems that can arise in patients with diabetes mellitus. Over 80% of all amputations are caused by foot ulcers, which are 11 times more common in those with diabetes mellitus. By managing patients with a comprehensive approach, ulcer formation frequency can be decreased. Research indicates that homeopathy has the potential to alleviate related symptoms and facilitate ulcer healing. A diabetic patient with a profound punched-out foot ulcer is the subject of the case study. He has been on traditional oral anti-diabetic medications for the last ten years due to his diabetes. For seven days, the ulcer in the left leg was above the greater toe. It was painless, with a yellowish pustular sticky discharge with a burning and itching feeling close to the edge. The ulcer had a circular form, a well-defined edge, a slough, and a yellowish floor. It measured 50 mm by 50 mm and had a depth of 5 mm. There was no involvement or extension to the tendon or bones. It is determined to be of grade I using the Wagner method. The case was examined based on the whole set of symptoms. Using HOMPATH software and Kent's repertory, repertorization was carried out. <strong>Gunpowder</strong> was therefore the recommended treatment. It was prescribed that four dosages of 200th centesimal potency be taken once a day. The Wagner system was used to assess the ulcer, and the lesion was photographed at the same angle and with comparable light exposure. It was discovered that the ulcer had healed after 1.5 months. Furthermore, it was discovered that the blood glucose level decreased even though the current conventional treatment remained unchanged. The next steps in an evidence-based approach should be observational studies and well-designed randomized controlled trials.</p> Komalba Zala, Anand Pal Singh Kushwah Copyright (c) 2024 International Journal of Pharmaceutical and Health Research https://ijphr.com/index.php/ijphr/article/view/17 Wed, 20 Mar 2024 00:00:00 +0000
