Is there a diabeties sufferer who is not aware of annoying skin problems, notably on the legs and feet?
In some cases there are fissures, in some cases large cracks, and underlying other causes of a multitude of clinical issues which may well necessitate in severe cases amputation if the problem remains untreated.
Fissures are formed when the skin is dry (loss of hydration) or becomes thicker (horny skin), often diabetes is the underlying cause. Other factors can certainly also be the cause or enhance the problems, including skin cleaning agents (e.g. soap), excessive washing, heat, cold, low humidity, exposure to UV radiation, failure to drink enough fluids and skin diseases (neurodermatitis).
Neuropathy in diabetes leads to reduced secretion of sweat (dry skin) and often also reduces the sensation of pain which then leads to an increased injury risk. The risk of sustaining dangerous wounds is further enhanced by the fact that wound healing usually is clearly impaired because of disturbed blood circulation.
