In brief: Diabetic diet
Following a good diabetic diet that allows you to keep your blood sugar nice and low and level will give you your best chance at healing an ulcer. See a doctor for additional wound care, debridement, or antibiotics if there are any signs of infection.

In brief: Diabetic ulcer heal
The single best dietary factor in a diabetic with an ulcer is to get your blood sugar under the best control that you can.
Next important would be dietary protein but you should consult with he pcp to make sure that your renal function is not going to be affected by higher protein intake.
