Gangrene

Gangrene is a severe condition caused by a lack of blood supply reaching the affected part. As a result, the tissue starts to die. Although it may affect any part of the body it is more prevalent in distal parts. IIt shows as redness, swelling, sores and loss of sensation or pain in the affected area. Gangrene maybe due to diabetes, narrowing of the blood vessels and the build-up of fats in the arteries. Early treatment is important so that damaged tissue can be removed surgically.
