@darlingtondoll, you surely don't want to invite an environment for sepsis to set in.
I found this article by DaVita

Darlington, How are you finding the increase in protein? Has it helped with healing the wound? Do you find some proteins are better than others for you?

I just started to increase my proteins, but I don’t do it every day. I’ll know more when I see my wound doctor next week. I added B vitamins to my diet because I only eat once a day and I need to make sure that I am getting a balanced diet. I eat a lot of shellfish because I love it and it has a lot of good vitamins and minerals. Plus it is low fat. I live in a wheelchair and I need to keep my weight at a healthy level. I weigh 120 pounds and that is the max for me. I have been going to an infusion center and get an IV every day to fight the infection. It has worked so far. Now I need this ulcer to heal.
