Nutritional Impact on Slow Healing Wounds

Nutritional Impact on Slow Healing Wounds 

Good nutrition is the foundation for wound healing. Without it, wounds typically take longer to heal, or may not heal at all. The role of nutrition in wound healing has been recognized for decades and the role of individual nutrients specifically has been studied and documented as early as the 1930s (Lanman & Ingalls, 1937). As such, evaluation of nutritional status and implementation of nutrition intervention is a key component to wound care, especially for wounds that are slow healing. Remember, there is no cookie-cutter approach to treatment for healing wounds. There are guidelines to help provide a foundation on which to build treatment protocols, but recommendations for each person must be based on an individualized assessment.
