Abstract: Wound chronicity in diabetic foot ulceration (DFU) presents a significant cost to the healthcare system and also increases the likelihood of infection and amputation. Factors such as dietary intake, smoking, vascular status and infection have been proposed as contributory factors for chronicity. However, there is limited quality evidence to demonstrate the contribution of these factors in delayed healing in DFU. The aims of this research protocol are therefore to assess factors contributing to healing outcomes and wound chronicity in people with DFU, and to measure dietary intake in patients with DFU in an Australian setting.
