If it is a simple fracture without any wounds, then it should heal as it would in a non diabetic individual.Good blood sugar control is very important to promote wound healing.HIgh blood sugars increase the risk of infection and delayed wound healing.You may want to consult a well qualified diabetologist regarding your diabetes control
