Diabetics’ skin wounds

People with diabetes are a group of people who are particularly suffering because of hard to heal wounds or ulcers, often arising spontaneously. That difficulty healing wounds and ease their formation results from deteriorating tissue perfusion, particularly in the feet and hands. The mechanism of the vascular atrophy  in these distal parts of the body is not fully understood. It is known, however, that the tissue of people with diabetes are less well oxygenated, while low activity of vascular endothelial growth factor.




As has been written above, one of the adaptation mechanisms of the human body to the altitude climate is the stimulation and increased activity of vascular endothelial growth factor. For this reason, the use of the therapy in the conditions of altitude is absolutely reasonable for many reasons. It would seem that such conduct may be harmful because it deepens the state of tissue hypoxia. However, the residence time under mild hypoxia is sufficiently short and intense enough to lead to the application of adaptive mechanisms throughout the body. Subsequent human being in lowland conditions allows him to spend 100% of available oxygen and nourish the subtle hypoxic tissues due to vascular microcaliper emerging, particularly in the healing of wounds and other bad blood supply places. This is because the vascular endothelial growth factor has its highest activity in hypoxic conditions in tissue (which has implications in the activity of hypoxia inducible factor). The treatment of wounds and ulcers in the conditions of altitude in people with diabetes is much faster, giving very good results (Lerman OZ. 2003). At the same time in addition to the vascular endothelium growth factor, comes to an increase in the activity of other growth factors due to hypoxia. The highest activity in this area has insulin-like growth factor, transforming growth factor, epidermal growth factor and hepatocyte growth factor. All of these contribute to improved recovery and regeneration of the skin and other body structures. They are often used as ingredients in cosmetics for diabetics.




Conditions of altitude have also found use in the treatment of diabetes by increasing the number of glucose transporters at the surface of cell membranes. More on this subject in Metabolic disorders. We offer a technical solution enables HYPOXY after being in conditions of reduced oxygen to create the conditions for increased oxygen content of about 30%, which further intensify the effects discussed. All these results are achievable in the apartment, a hospital room, in rehabilitation clinics and anywhere else where a quick return to health. In addition to improving the blood flow within the surgical wounds, hypoxia altitude gives a number of other health benefits, which are described on our website.




LOXYS® gives to you the alpine climate, which may arise within the existing premises. Created by our terms and conditions altitude not associated with dangerous lowering of the pressure in the „chambers”, but with the creation of a unique atmosphere which is constantly monitoring. Terms of altitude created by advanced technology, reducing the oxygen concentration in the room, which may correspond to a height in the range of 2000 to 6000 m asl. Thanks to constant monitoring by the computer system does not reach dangerous concentrations of CO2. High air quality, inspired by the clean mountain environment and air is ensured thanks to the air conditioning and ventilation, which stands offered by us.
