If the diabetic foot ulcer is large, skin graft may be done in consultation with a diabetic specialist. Skin grafting is a type of graft surgery involving the transplantation of skin. The transplanted tissue is called a skin graft. Skin grafting is often used to treat: Extensive wounding or trauma.

You have not stated HbA1c level. Improving HbA1c level by 1% for people with type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes cut the risk of microvascular complications by 25%.

Research also shown that people with type 2 diabetes who reduce their HbA1c by 1% are:

19% less likely to suffer cataracts.

16% less likely to suffer heart failure.

43% less likely to suffer amputation or death due to peripheral vascular disease.

Go for a well balanced diet as per your choice and liking for your diabetes . The best way.

As for your wound best way is to keep it open. But as sole of foot is affected it has to be covered with light dressing. Please keep your wound open for a few hours in sun light. If that is not feasible , foment it it in artificial light of electric table lamp. Soon it will help to dry the wound and help in healing.

For curing Diabetic ulser, the best option is to normalise Blood Sugar level. If you find it difficult, I can help you. I have not only controlled but cured my Diabetes.

Clean the wound. Apply an antibiotic cream or ointment. Cover the cut with a bandage. This will help keep bacteria out. Remove the bandage once the cut begins to heal. Seek medical attention if the wound is longer than one-third of an inch. Some studies have shown that honey can help protect cuts and may also make them heal faster. I had to undergo chiropody ( oakvillechiropractic.com/se... ) from Oakville in order to manage my diabetic foot.
