Wound Healing in Diabetes Mellitus: Traditional Treatment Modalities


di A.A. Latiff, S.L. Teoh, S. Das

The healing of wound is a complex process which requires the interactions of different cells and extracellular molecules. The normal wound healing process can be divided into four overlapping phases i.e. haemostasis, infl ammation, proliferation and remodeling. In diseased condition like diabetes mellitus, the wound healing process is grossly impaired, resulting in chronic wounds which fail to heal. In the past decades, several researchers have tested various traditional medicines obtained from the plants for their wound healing properties. Such traditional plants are Aloe vera, Calotropis procera, Portulaca oleracea, Acalypha langiana, Plagiochasma appendiculatum and Momordica charantia. Perhaps one of the most popular and easily available plant is Momordica charantia (bitter gourd). The present article presents an extensive review on the impaired wound healing process in diabetes mellitus and highlights the use of traditional medicines in diabetic wounds.
