Diabetic Skin: targeted soothing and support


Inflammation, dryness and disorganization of elastic fibers seem to be major causes of the impairment of cutaneous functions in diabetic skin.

Among the molecular pathways causally associated with these aspects, non-enzymatic glycosylation (glycation) stands out as perhaps the single most effective mechanism.

This paper describes in detail some of the reported causes of cutaneous pathologies associated with diabetes and suggests ingredients for appropriate interventions, for the glycation-induced pathologies as well as for other pathologies encountered in diabetic skin, for which the link with glycation is not immediately obvious.
