Answer

Many medications may have a role in the treatment of diabetes, the complications of diabetes, and the etiologies of diabetic ulcer. For example, hemorrheologic agents and antiplatelet agents are sometimes used in the management of underlying atherosclerotic disease. The role of aspirin, however, remains unclear.
