Diabetic Skin Care Kit

Diabetes mellitus is a disease that affects multiple organs including the skin and feet. It interferes with wound healing, may decrease skin sensation, and can alter the mechanical forces involved in walking. Of the many organs affected by diabetes, patients can have the most important influence on the skin by detecting problems before they become severe and getting the needed help early.

Those affected by diabetes should inspect their feet daily, perhaps most easily after showering or bathing. You should pay particular attention to calluses and cracks in the skin, which should be brought to the attention of your health care professional. By taking care of your skin and feet you can improve your own quality of life.
