^^^^^ What he said.
Keeping carbs down and blood sugar levels low helps reduce inflammation and infections can't "grow" as well at lower blood sugar levels compared to high blood sugar levels.
Had a critical care nurse told me a few years back patients with high levels of infection they would put on an insulin drip to keep blood sugars very low. They found that high blood sugar levels made the infections go nuts. No, I am not recommending going on insulin (I'm not recommending anything as I am not a doctor), but the point is the better you can keep your blood sugar levels in a good range the better the infection response will be. The way to reduce blood sugar levels is limit the carbohydrate intake.
Might consider a mostly carnivore diet for a while till healed. Eating meat has done a lot of healing for a lot of different medical conditions.
Not medical advice. See your health care professional for medical advice. Just my opinion.
