Glycaemic control, adequate nutrition, presence of infection, the use of modern dressing approach, provide sufficient offloading and avoid unhealthy lifestyle like smoking are the highlighted determining factors discussed in this review and found to have an association towards a timely manner of wound healing in diabetic foot ulcers.
