6 Symptoms of Prediabetes You Shouldn’t Ignore

Skin symptoms

One of the areas affected the quickest by diabetes is the skin. Diabetes symptoms on the skin can be some of the most easy to recognize and earliest to appear. Some of the ways that diabetes affects the skin is causing poor circulation, slow wound healing, lowered immune function, and itching or dryness. This makes yeast infections, bacterial infections and other skin rashes more likely to develop and harder to get rid of.

Skin problems, triggered by diabetes, include: rashes/infections that are sometimes itchy, hot, swollen, red and painful, bacterial infections (including vaginal yeast infections and Staphylococcus bacteria, also called staph), styes in the eyes and eyelids, acne, fungal infections (including candida symptoms that affect the digestive tract and fungus in skin folds, such as around the nails, under the breasts, between fingers or toes, in the mouth, and around the genitals), jock itch, athlete’s foot and ringworm, dermopathy, necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum, blisters and scales, especially around infections, and folliculitis (infections of hair follicles).

If you are diagnosed with prediabetes, look at it as a second chance to get your health on track before you head down the harrowing path of no return to full-on diabetes. If you’ve been diagnosed with prediabetes or suspect you may have it, talk to your doctor about a personalized lifestyle action plan to help you turn your health around before it becomes too difficult to do so!
