What Skin Problems Are Common in People with Diabetes?

Diabetes raises the risk of complications throughout the body, including the skin. If you've recently been diagnosed with diabetes, a dermatologist will become an important member of your care team. He or she can help you avoid the problems discussed in this brief video.

The doctor featured here explains that high blood glucose levels cause fluid loss and blood vessel damage. Patients are at a higher risk of dry skin, which can crack and allow an infection to develop. Diabetics are also more likely to have slow wound healing. A clinical dermatologist can recommend a potent moisturizer to protect the skin.

The skin problems associated with medical conditions are manageable with the right care from a dermatologist. Schedule a consultation today by calling Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery at (866) 400-3376.
