Diabetes and Skin Health: The Benefits and Effects of Lanolin for Protecting Diabetic Skin and Preventing Complications.
Learn how consistent skin care is critical to protecting diabetic skin and preventing complications.
Over 29 million people in the United States suffer from diabetes with prevalence among seniors reaching over 25% of the population. Diabetes can lead to fatigue, cardiovascular disease, eye damage, incontinence, and a wide range of skin conditions if not properly managed. Proper disease management and skin care is key to preventing complications that can result in tragic consequences.
The physical and economic impacts of diabetic skin conditions are far reaching. Skin diseases are estimated to effect between 30% and 100% of people with diabetes, with prevalence of foot ulcers estimated at 25% within a lifetime. Consistent skin care is critical to maintaining skin integrity and managing skin conditions associated with diabetes.

Incontinence-Associated Dermatitis, Moisture-Associated Skin Damage, and Pressure Ulcer Prevention: The Benefits of a Consistent Skin Care Regimen Using Lanolin Products.
Learn how consistent skin care is critical to preventing IAD, MASD and pressure ulcers.
Incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD), moisture-associated skin damage (MASD), and pressure ulcers are common afflictions affecting the skin of at-risk individuals.
These conditions represent a significant drain on health care resources and dramatically affect quality of life for patients. In many cases, the incidence and prevalence of these conditions can be reduced through a consistent skin care regimen using specially formulated products such as those containing lanolin.
Consistent skin care is critical to preventing IAD, MASD and pressure ulcers. As many as 95% of pressure ulcers are preventable by implementing standardized, consistent skin care procedures and educating practitioners on the relationship between IAD, MASD and pressure ulcers.
