Diabetes is a chronic condition that affects millions of people including in Australia and New Zealand. We explore common skin and nail concerns for people suffering from diabetes and how Spirularin® solutions can help – naturally!
Diabetes In A Nutshell:
Diabetes is a chronic condition characterised by high blood sugar levels. It occurs when the body either does not produce enough insulin (type 1 diabetes) or becomes resistant to insulin (type 2 diabetes). Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood sugar levels.
Diabetes can lead to various complications, including cardiovascular diseases, kidney damage, nerve damage, and vision problems. It is managed through lifestyle modifications, such as a healthy diet, regular exercise, and medication or insulin therapy. Regular monitoring of blood sugar levels, early detection, and proactive management are essential to prevent complications and maintain overall well-being.
Increased Risk of Skin Infections:
People with diabetes are more susceptible to skin infections due to high blood sugar levels, a weakened immune system, and reduced blood flow to the skin. Skin issues like dryness, itching, and cracking can provide an entry point for bacteria and fungi. This increases the risk of conditions such as cellulitis, a bacterial skin infection, and fungal infections like athlete's foot. Proper foot hygiene, regular moisturisation, and prompt treatment of any skin abnormalities are crucial to prevent and manage these infections.
Spirularin® Skin Gel contains the unique Spiralin® microalgae extract with its naturally effective cell-regenerative and antimicrobial properties. For application anywhere on the body, Spirularin® Skin Gel not only keeps skin hydrated and less prone to breaking, but provides active antimicrobial protection of the skin even against drug-resistant strains of bacteria (e.g. Staph. Aureus), to minimise risk of infections or accelerate healing of existing skin concerns.
Delayed Wound Healing:
Diabetes can impair the body's ability to heal wounds efficiently. High blood sugar levels can affect blood flow, reduce oxygen and nutrient supply to tissues, and damage nerves, leading to impaired wound healing. Even minor cuts, blisters, or sores can develop into chronic non-healing wounds, known as diabetic ulcers. These ulcers are susceptible to infection and may require specialised wound care, including regular cleaning, appropriate dressings, and off-loading pressure from the affected area to promote healing.
Increased Risk of Warts:
Warts are growths caused by the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). People with diabetes may have a higher risk of developing warts due to their compromised immune system. The persistent high blood sugar levels can weaken the immune response, making it more difficult for the body to fight off HPV infections. Proper foot hygiene, regular self-examination, and prompt treatment of warts are essential to prevent their spread and minimise discomfort or pain associated with walking or standing.
Conventional wart-removal methods are generally not suitable for diabetics due to their invasive nature. Most methods create wounds, which then cause complications when it comes to healing. Spirularin®VS Wart Cream can safely be applied anywhere on the body and by anyone – including diabetics and children (3+ years old). It is massaged into the wart and surrounding healthy tissue 2x daily. It works by disrupting the virus' lifecycle and protecting the healthy cells against the wart-causing virus.
Susceptibility to Fungal Nail Infections:
Fungal nail infections (also known as Onychomycosis) are common in individuals with diabetes. The warm and moist environment within shoes provides an ideal breeding ground for fungi, and the compromised blood flow and weakened immune system in diabetes contribute to the increased susceptibility. Fungal nail infections can cause thickened, brittle, discoloured nails, and may spread to other nails or surrounding skin if left untreated. Regular foot care, proper nail hygiene, and early treatment of fungal nail infections can help prevent complications and maintain healthy nails.
Spirularin®NS Nail Serum for naturally effective regeneration of fungal finger or toe nails is also based on the unique Spiralin® extract and its antifungal properties. Thanks to its fast, simple and economical application (just one drop for ALL 10 nails, 2x daily) and its suitability for diabetics, women during pregnancy and even children (3+ years old), makes it our bestseller with clients and healthcare professionals alike.
Diligent & Proactive Management Is Key!
It is important for individuals with diabetes to prioritise regular foot care and maintain good overall blood sugar control. Regularly inspecting the skin and nails, promptly addressing any abnormalities, wearing well-fitting shoes, and seeking professional medical advice are crucial steps in managing skin issues, warts, and fungal nails associated with diabetes. Consulting a healthcare professional or a podiatrist can provide personalised guidance and appropriate treatment options for these concerns.
