Why Shouldn’T Diabetics Use Salicylic Acid

Can patients with diabetes take salicylic acid?

It is beneficial for minor skin issues including warts, corns, and calluses due to its capacity to progressively destroy epidermis. All salicylic acid products are, however, strictly contraindicated for diabetic people. This warning should be extended to all equipment for removing corns and calluses.

Why are diabetics unable to use corn removers?

Never attempt to cut your own calluses or corns; doing so may lead to sores and infection. Permit a member of your diabetic care team to trim your calluses. Also, do not use chemical agents to remove calluses and corns. These items might cause skin irritation.

Helpful three-part strategy for a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet that treats and avoids Prediabetes/Diabetes II (also cures/prevents high blood pressure and high cholesterol). Very comprehensive description of insulin resistance and its treatment.

I’m pleased the book gave solid facts and information on why a low-carb, high-fat diet is not sustainable.

Diet works if you adhere to it, as simple as that. It is simple to sustain this diet long-term.

What impact does salicylate have on the value of blood glucose?

Salicylates reduce blood sugar levels and increase glucose-stimulated insulin release in both healthy and diabetic humans. Even though the hypoglycemic impact seems to be mediated by increased insulin secretion, extra-pancreatic pathways cannot be ruled out.

What treatments may diabetics take for corns?

Employ corn pads. These products include salicylic acid, which may irritate healthy skin and lead to infection, particularly in those with diabetes or other disorders that cause poor blood circulation. Before using a medicated pad, you may preserve healthy skin by applying petroleum jelly (Vaseline) to the region around the corn or callus.

This is the finest diabetic book that I have ever read. The excellent ones all recommend a high-carbohydrate, low-fat, plant-based diet, but this one explains why we should follow this diet. I have been a whole-food, plant-based eater for around five years, but I ate too many nuts, nut butters, and seeds despite the fact that they are entire foods.

As soon as I read the explanation in this book, I saw why too much fat was harmful. My insulin consumption went from 30 units per day to 12 units per day, and it seems to be moving even lower, and my blood sugar management has improved to the point that it is almost predictable, while on a high-fat diet, my blood sugar was like a random walk.

I adore this book! BTW, except when I’m fasting, I’m never hungry. Intermittent fasting is not required, but it does help you lose weight and activate your cellular defenses. Eating according to the advice in this book will help mend your metabolic disease, and you will lose weight. Good luck!!!!
