7 Skin Problems Diabetes Gives You

MD, MBBS

7 Skin Problems Diabetes Gives You

7 Diabetes Related Skin Problems

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder, chiefly caused by insulin fluctuation in the body. A study shows that, 1 out of 3 people suffering from diabetes are likely to develop a skin condition sooner or later; and in some cases, these skin problems serve as symptoms of diabetes. Although these skin problems can be cured easily if treated early, proper care must be administered at all times. Here are 7 skin conditions that affect diabetics:

1. Bacterial infection

Although anyone can get a bacterial infection, people suffering from diabetes are likelier to contract them. Usual bacterial skin problems that tend to trouble diabetics are boils, lumps near the eyelids, nail infections and carbuncles. Diabetics are also prone to infections deep in the skin and of the underlying tissues. The affected area is usually warm, red and swollen.

2. Fungal infections

People who have diabetes have an increased risk of contracting the fungal infection, especially the one known as candida Albicans. The fungus tends to create a red, itchy rash, which is surrounded by blisters and scales. These are usually found in warm places of the body like the armpits, or between the fingers of the hand or perhaps even the toes. Common fungal infections in diabetic people include athlete's foot, jock itch and ringworm.

3. Tingling and itching

Among the many causes of itching, diabetes is one. Yeast infection, dry skin and poor circulation are the primary causes of itching among patients of diabetes. Usually, the lower part of the leg tends to itch the most, if poor circulation is to be blamed.

4. Skin problems related to neuropathy

Diabetes can be the cause of nerve damage in some cases; and neuropathy is a common symptom of diabetes. This type of damage can cause a loss of sensation in a part of the body. On event of an injury, one may not be able to feel it. As a result, an open sore or wound, if left unattended, can develop into an infection.

5. Digital sclerosis

Digital sclerosis, a condition marked by tight, waxy, thick skin that develops on the back of the hand, is common among people who have type 1 diabetes. In this condition, the joints of the fingers get stiff and, thus, lose their mobility and elasticity. Skin of the toes, forehead and knees may also get affected.

6) Xerosis

Xerosis is another common skin condition that accompanies diabetes. In this condition, the skin becomes very dry and itchy.

7) Acanthosis nigricans

Acanthosis nigricans is the condition where diabetics get darkening of skin leading to skin tags around neck and armpits.

lybrate-user, Madam when placent is at the lower end of the uterus, it obstructs the birth passage. Hence, natural or unassisted delivery is most unlikely to happen. Plus is dangerous to the fetus. Because the birth canal is blocked by placenta, only way to deliver the baby is by a cesarean section. There is no option. There is no reason to panic, as it has become a simple surgery with hardly any complications. Thanks.

Mr Saurav, Hypothyroidism, is a thyroxine hormone deficiency condition, where thyroid gland is not producing enough hormone. This is an important hormone required for development and functioning of brain, plus most of the other important metabolic activities of the body. So it has to be supplemented from outside as thyroxine tablets. This has to on for Life Time. There is no option.

Pain in both feet can be because of diabetes. It is called diabetic peripheral neuropathy. To reduce your pain, blood sugar should be kept under control. There are various tablet available which can reduce your pain.

Preetiji, Alcohol in any quantity is bad for health. It provides empty calories, does not have any nutritional value.So in my opinion it is bad in any quantity. More so if a person is over weight. But the choice is yours. Thanks.
