Diabetes is a chronic disease caused due to poor diet and poor lifestyle. Due to this disease, the blood sugar level of the patient starts increasing rapidly. This disease is called metabolic disorder. This condition causes cells in the body to not respond properly to insulin. When insulin is not produced properly in a diabetic patient, it affects the metabolism (symptoms of diabetes) of the patient.
Diabetes is a disease that starts with symptoms. Along with the body, your skin also indicates that you are suffering from this disease. There are some changes in the skin that indicate that you are suffering from the symptoms of diabetes.
Symptoms of pre-diabetes are visible in the skin. The skin tells you that you are at risk for diabetes.
1. Skin Infections:
The most common symptom of pre-diabetes is a sudden skin infection. When the skin becomes infected, the skin looks hot and swollen and the skin is sore. Sometimes the skin feels very dry.
2. Infection in Toes and Nails:
As diabetes progresses, the risk of infection in the toes and nails increases. There may be sores on the fingers.
3. Scars, Acne on Skin:
Skin rash is a symptom of diabetes. Before diabetes occurs, cellulite starts appearing on the skin and gradually dark colored rashes appear on the skin. These marks can be anywhere on the arms, legs or back. Don’t ignore them.
Wounds: There are wounds on the skin due to increase in blood sugar. High blood sugar increases the risk of cancer in the body. Sugar damages many nerves.
5. Skin Tightening:
High blood sugar causes the skin to thicken, sometimes making the skin appear thicker, especially on the face, shoulders, and chest. In many cases, the skin looks tight even from the knees, ankles and elbows.
6. Darkening of the skin and redness of the skin:
As the blood sugar level increases, so does the color of the skin. When the sugar level increases, dark spots form on the skin.
These marks can be on the back of the neck and on the legs. In many cases red spots also appear on the skin.
These pimples look like pimples and gradually increase in size.
