Diabetes and hip replacents with the Monalisa Touch
The Monalisa Touch procedure is absolutely safe for diabetic patients and for those who have undergone hip replacement surgery or any other orthopedic surgery for that matter.
Diabetes and hip replacement and the MonaLisa Touch
These two conditions are not contraindications for the MonaLisa Touch procedure. The laser treatment is very superficial, targeting the mucosa, so will not lead to infection in your joint replacement. It is always recommended to have good glycemic control, otherwise you may increase your risk of a yeast infection after treatment. On a rare occasion, I have given prophylactic anti-fungal medication to those patients who are prone to yeast infection before and after a MonaLisa Touch treatment. I would have a consult with your MonaLisa Touch provider prior treatment to determine how to optimize your health, and thus your comfort during and after treatment.
Is MonaLisa Touch safe in diabetics?
MonaLisa Touch (MLT) is perfectly safe in patients with diabetes as well as those who have had hip replacements.
