Diabetes and Skin care

Diabetes or “sugar” manifests itself in myriad presentations. Surprisingly enough, it is one of those diseases that happen to be diagnosed accidentally as the affected individual is more likely to have approached healthcare provider for a seemingly different reason. Since our skin is highly sensitive to changes in blood sugar levels, it very often gets involved in diabetes. There is research based evidence to prove that 30-70% of diabetics develop skin problems. That explains why it is so important to pay attention to the skin for diabetics or those at risk. The sensitivity of skin ranges from subtle to established changes which can precede or accompany raised blood sugar levels.
