Diabetes skin problems

freestyle libre adhesive patches

A third of diabetics will have skin issues such as blisters or a rash on their legs. Some skin disorders, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), might be warning indications of diabetes in persons who have not been diagnosed. The good news is that most diabetes-related skin issues may be easily avoided or treated if discovered early.

Skin issues caused by diabetes can affect healthy people, although diabetics are at a considerably higher risk. 

The following are examples of diabetes-related skin issues: 

  1. Bacterial infections. 

  2. Diabetes rash. 

  3. Diabetic blisters.

  4. Diabetic dermopathy. 

  5. Eruptive xanthomatosis. 

  6. Fungal infections. 

  7. Necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum.

  8. Skin itching. 

How to take care of your skin?

The first step in preventing and treating diabetic skin issues is to keep your blood glucose under control. When diabetes affects your skin, creating sores or a rash, it identifies that your blood sugar levels are too high. It's time to see your doctor if you detect any skin issues.

If you haven't been diagnosed with diabetes yet, get tested. Work with your doctor and a diabetic nurse educator to learn how to manage your diabetes via food, exercise, and, if necessary, medication.

The second step is to use our freestyle libre adhesive patches that are made of hypoallergenic and latex-free breathable materials. That is why they won't let even the most sensitive skin get irritated.
