Caption: Ulcers on the hand of a patient with diabetes mellitus. Ulcers are a fairly common complication of diabetes. Antibiotic drugs and regular cleaning and dressing of the ulcer hasten its healing. Diabetes is a condition in which the pancreas does not produce sufficient quantities of the hormone insulin, which regulates blood sugar levels. This can lead to coma and death if not properly managed. Other complications can include neuropathy (nerve damage) and high blood pressure. Changes to the diet or regular injections of insulin are required to control the condition, but if these are observed the patient can live an otherwise normal life.
