People with diabetes are more prone to foot problems – ever wondered why?
This is largely due to high fluctuations in blood glucose levels that cause damage to blood vessels and lead to lower limb circulatory problems. Another significant impact on the disease is on the skin that becomes more susceptible to infections especially of the lower limb, including bacterial and fungal infections. Nerve damage and poor blood flow to the feet increases the risk of various foot complications. Left untreated, cuts and blisters can become serious infections and take much longer than usual to heal.
New research shows that a diabetic’s skin on the feet should not be occluded, as the lack of transpiration may cause the skin to break down, leaving the skin of the foot at risk of not performing its function of protection. All Footlogix products are non-occlusive, taking special care to not seal or impede the natural functions of the skin.
A good example of one of our most popular products for Diabetics is the Footlogix Cracked Heel Formula, with Dermal Infusion Technology® that recently won the “Best Foot Lotion” in the NAILPRO Magazine Readers’ Choice Awards.
- Urea hydrates and draws moisture to the area
- Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) increases elastin and collagen production
- Evening Primrose and Aloe heal the skin
