Chronic Dry Skin on Diabetics

Diabetes affects many of the body's organs, including the largest organ, the skin.  Many patients with diabetes suffer from extremely dry skin, which can lead to infections.  Not only is the skin more susceptible to infection, it is generally slower to heal.  The factors that contribute to the slower healing rate are reduced blood flow to the skin (microangiopathy), higher blood glucose that supports bacterial growth, a slower metabolic rate and thicker skin.

Lower legs and feet are particularly prone to dry skin problems due to thinner skin and poor circulation in those areas.  Daily treatment of dry skin is a highly recommended, necessary and a cost effective way of preventing further problems and complications.  RegenaSkin™, used regularly, can help to keep your skin supple enough to resist the cracking and infections that plague many diabetics. Applying this gentle cream will help to heal problem skin, and it can then protect your skin from the severe dryness that causes itching and cracking.

What People Are Saying

"Working with patients who have complex wounds has allowed me the opportunity to try many different wound care products. RegenaSkin™ has proven to be an extremely valuable cream to help restore moisture and pliability to dry and damaged skin.

We now have a series of patients who have successfully used RegenaSkin™ during their healing process that now continue to use this product to keep their skin hydrated, supple and healthy. In addition to our patients, many of our clinic staff enjoy the restorative properties that RegenaSkin™ provides to our skin that has been injured from using desiccating soaps as well as vinyl and latex gloves.

Since RegenaSkin™ does not require a prescription, anyone can enjoy the benefits of this terrific product! Keep up the great work and thank you for RegenaSkin!

"First and foremost, let me thank you for developing this wonderful cream, RegenaSkin. Hopefully you will continue to market this product for a long time to come.

About 1999, I started developing severe cracked skin on the soles of my feet. It started on my heals and then progressed to the soles of my feet. About a year after I developed cracked skin on my hands, which eventually started bleeding. It affected mostly my fingertips, but then the sides of my finger joints became affected progressing slowly towards the inside of my hands. By the end of 2000 I had trouble walking and couldn't sign checks at work, finally using a signature stamp to make life easier. Doctors only shook their heads prescribing cream after cream. The creams were abrasive and really hurt. I went to a podiatrist who tried sanding the scale and I could barely walk for a week. Meanwhile, the cracks were only getting deeper.

At the end of 2000, I was diagnosed as a diabetic. Most days I walked around barefoot, because it relieved some of the pain in my feet. Also barefoot I could walk on the tip of my toes or on the side of my foot, whatever was necessary. At this time, I was also diagnosed with psoriasis. I tried all the creams; sprays, everything that was prescribed or I bought myself. I soaked my feet in Epson salts, tea, ect., which made things even worse since it dries out the skin even more. I couldn't wear most of my shoes, instead I bought knee high nylons and wore them once and threw them away (since taking the hose off tore them to shreds).

I finally read an article about Kimberly and her cream in The Coloradoan in September of 2003. I promptly misplaced the article but found it again at the end of November last year among my paperwork on my desk. I figured I had nothing to lose, except adding another cream to all the others I had tried. It was only a couple of weeks after I started using the cream that I began to see a difference. The cracks, which were constantly bleeding, were actually slowly healing and my hands were almost back to normal. I also noticed the heavy scale on my feet receding.

My doctor had mentioned to me that I could actually lose my feet and she had not even seen them at their worst. As I said, I could not bathe my feet and walking was sheer torture. The dermatologist was horrified and said the only way to possibly get rid of this was to administer painful shots. With no guarantee the shots would work. She said, sooner or later I would get a major infection in one of the cracks in my feet.

You would not recognize my feet now. They have no cracks and most of the hard scale is gone. I can actually wear nylons and not rip them. In the beginning, I definitely had to use the cream 3 and 4 times a day. On my hands more often, every time I washed them or did dishes, ect. Even while doing dishes in gloves, because the hands still sweat. I now use RegenaSkin™ cream twice a day, once in the morning and once at night before going to bed. I guess the underlying disease is still there, but the cream keeps my skin in good condition.

The nice thing about RegenaSkin™ is that a little goes a long way. It is greasy when applied, but will sink into the skin and disappear. When I massage it into my skin, it is very soothing. I don't know what it contains; all I know is that it works for me.

I will send a letter to the Psoriasis Foundation of which I am a member. Maybe it will help someone else as it did me. I certainly hope so. Thank you again, Kimberly."

"I am a T-12 paraplegic since 1981 and a diabetic since 1994. Pressure sores on my bottom and sores on my feet are something I endure every couple of years or so. My skin gets very scaly on my feet and around the sores that develop. My doctors have always suggested I buy the most expensive skin cream, which I have but have not seen any more success than with the least expensive creams.

I recently had several sores develop on my right foot and after reading about RegenaSkin™ in the local paper I decided it was worth a try. My scaly and dry skin on my leg and foot was completely gone within two to three weeks (that was with only one application a day). Since my sores have healed the skin around them and the skin that healed over them is in better shape and has stayed in the best shape since 1981 before I had my accident. Every time the Doctor looks at my foot he comments on how quickly and nicely it has healed.

I would recommend RegenaSkin™ to anyone with skin problems. I believe you will be extremely happy with the results."

"RegenaSkin is a easy product to endorse. I have used it in the wound care clinic for the past 6 years with excellent results. It is non-prescription, affordable, and non-allergenic. It works well to restore denuded or damaged skin. It is also a good skin protectant. I use it myself almost daily and it's the first product I reach for after skiing or rafting excursions. Lastly, Kimberly has a wonderful customer service record."

“Mom continues to improve and her feet and legs are so soft…not a sign of the skin cracks she experienced before.  I don’t know what you put in this cream but it is just wonderful!  Congrats!  If you ever go public, let me know.  I want to buy some stock!”

“I have leg ulcers on the front of my legs and the skin is dry all around the sores.  The cream made my sores feel better immediately.  Thank you!”

“The cream has been a huge help.  I bought it for my dry, cracked feet.  I went to the Podiatrist and she asked what I had been using because there had been such an improvement.  Now I use your cream on my whole body.  Thanks, it has been a great help.”

“I have had diabetes for over 30 years and also had thyroid cancer.  I have extremely dry skin areas on my fingers which can split to very sore cuts.  It was to the point of being unbearable.  I work as a ski patroller in the winter.  It was so bad I was having a hard time performing my duties.  I came across your website on a search.  I was desperate to try anything.  The results of RegenaSkin have been stellar.”

“My daughter gave me a jar of RegenaSkin for Christmas.  I have diabetes and due to the medication I take my skin becomes very dry.  I have used this product daily and have been so pleased with the product.  I like the way it absorbs into the skin and isn’t greasy!”

“Just a quick note to let you know I LOVE your cream.  I noticed after the first time I used it that my toes and toenails started to improve.  They were dry and the toenails were splitting.  My skin feels so much better; if I shower without putting some on afterwards, I really notice it.  I especially like the way it works – it’s not greasy, a little goes a long way and it lasts!  I don’t have to keep applying it for it to be effective.  Thanks for making this product available to the public!”

“RegenaSkin healed my son’s eczema.  I’ve since swiped the remainder of the RegenaSkin to try on my dry feet/ I’ve gone all winter without the typical cracked and bleeding toes.  I’ve tried many other products so it’s a great relief to find something that gives me relief (I was only thinking of my son when I purchased RegenaSkin, but we both benefitted)!  Thanks so much!”
