Caring For Your Skin With Diabetes
When you’re a diabetic, one of the biggest tasks and challenges you face on a day-to-day basis is keeping your blood glucose levels under control. When your glucose levels are controlled, all is well. But, when they’re not, that’s when you start having problems. One-third of all diabetics will develop a skin infection at some point during their lives.
“The biggest issue with diabetes is that when your sugar is not controlled, it affects the body’s small vessels, making them narrow or clot off altogether,” explains Dr. Mark Carter, who practices internal medicine in Phoenix, Arizona and has reversed diabetes in many of his patients.
