Nanotechnology research is a rapidly expanding to treat a variety of ailments that a patient may be experiencing. In the scope of diabetes, such research and development include glucose monitoring is one with the use of nanosensors, the management of wounds, and the promotion of wound healing. Nanosensors can simplify the glucose-monitoring process by providing much less noninvasive and increased feedback to the patient about glucose concentrations over traditional glucose monitors. As for the chronic wounds that are often concomitant with diabetes, notably via a pressure ulcer on the foot, nanotechnology seeks to correct this otherwise dysregulated wound-healing process. More specifically, nanotechnology aims to aid the wound-healing process through hemostasis, infection mitigation, control of inflammation, and promotion of cell regeneration and skin remodeling.
