As a diabetic, your risks for complications are higher. However, difficulty in healing and infections are the main concern. For this reason, it is important to keep all scheduled follow-up appointments and return sooner if any of the previously mentioned symptoms develop. Your doctor will treat any early suspected infections more aggressively with the knowledge that you are diabetic. It is also very important to keep you blood sugar in good control before and after the procedure. This will help in wound healing and decrease the likelihood of infections.
