Diabetes can cause a wide-range of problems for the body, including complications with the skin. In fact, in some cases, skin issues are often the first sign that a person has diabetes. Some of these problems are ones that anyone can have, but diabetes can increase the risk. Luckily, most of these conditions can be treated if caught early on. Other problems that can be a little more serious are most common in people with diabetes. These include diabetic dermopathy, necrobiosis lipoidica diabeticorum and diabetic blisters, among others.
Losing weight is a challenge that many people face today in the modern world. According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), more than one-third of adults and nearly one-fifth of adolescents in America are obese. This number has increased steadily over the last few decades. Obesity is the cause of numerous diseases, including cancer, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. For this reason, weight loss is a global health concern and a goal commonly pursued by many people. While weight loss can be good for one’s health, there are some side effects that often get overlooked. Saggy and loose skin is one of the effects that can occur as a result of dramatic weight loss.
