Thanks for the query

Are u sure u r not able to swallow? r is it that u have lost your appetite? PLease donot ignore the wounds, it needs to be dressed regularly.
Your sugar needs to be under very good control. I advice u admission and treatment. U might be having other diabetes related issuses like uremia which might be reducing your appetite
