Diabetes is a metabolic disorder that disrupts the body’s ability to process blood glucose. This disease continues to be a growing, global health concern and at least doubles the risk of early death.

Diabetes can be well-managed through diet, exercise and, if necessary, prescribed medication. However, skin complications related to this disease, such as infection, skin thickening and itching, are common. For example, diabetics may have dry, itchy skin caused by fluid loss due to high blood glucose levels.  The onset of skin problems may be more difficult to notice due to impaired circulation and decreased nerve sensitivity (diabetic neuropathy). Keen observation and good skin care are important considerations in diabetes management.

To prevent diabetic skin complications:

  • Maintain well-controlled blood glucose levels.
  • Keep skin clean and dry.
  • Avoid long, hot baths and showers; do not use bubble bath.
  • Apply lip balm to prevent chapped lips.
  • Do not scratch or itch skin vigorously.
  • Treat minor cuts and sores immediately to decrease risk of infection.
