dc.descriptionThis is an accepted manuscript of an article published by Royal College of Nursing in Primary Health Care on 02/02/2016, available online: https://doi.org/10.7748/phc.26.1.26.s28 The accepted version of the publication may differ from the final published version.
dc.description.abstractThe use of sugar in the treatment of wounds dates back to Ancient Egypt. This article begins with a summary of that history and, in the case study that follows, a patient describes his 13-year experience of living with leg ulcers. The patient explains the challenges these ulcers have brought to his day-to-day life and the particular problems he encountered with pain management. He discusses different approaches by doctors and district nurses to manage the ulcers and how, by chance, a newspaper article led to a meeting with a PhD student researching sugar and wound care – a meeting that was to lead to a new lease of life for the patient.en
