AIM: The authors wanted to verify the clinical effectiveness of a supplement based on lipoic acid, Ginkgo biloba and Leucoselect Phytosome in patients with foot syndrome.
METHODS: The patients were sorted into two groups. Each of the two patient groups was controlled at 7, 14, 21, 31 days and then every 30 days for eight months.
RESULTS: Clear macroscopic improvement of the ulcer with diameter reduction, total epithelialization, reduction of pCO2 from the initial value and pain reduction were observed.
CONCLUSION: The use of the Ginkgo biloba, alpha lipoic acid and Leucoselect Phytosome combination together with advanced medications, is useful in the treatment of chronic diabetic ulcers.
