William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital
Did you know that proper nutrition is important in keeping your skin healthy and allowing it to successfully rebuild itself after a cut or other type of damage? Your dietitian can help ensure that you are eating a healthy diet to promote timely wound healing. A dietitian can also help get your blood sugars under good control, which also supports adequate healing of wounds. Dietitians at the Madison VA Hospital are also part of a Wound Care Committee that meets monthly to discuss wound care issues with nurses and physical therapists.
