Dermatologic Health and Endocrine Disorders: How Thyroid Disease and Other Conditions Impact the Skin

Dermatologic Health and Endocrine Disorders updated
 

Many types of endocrine disorders may affect cutaneous health and appearance, and the skin may provide clues to an underlying endocrine condition. Understanding the relationship between the endocrine system and the skin can help health care professionals better detect and treat both endocrine-related and cutaneous manifestations of these disorders.

Thyroid and parathyroid disorders, diabetes mellitus, Cushing syndrome, Addison disease, and multiple endocrine neoplasia can all have cutaneous manifestations. Optimizing treatment for patients with endocrine-related skin lesions includes the selection and use of appropriate dressings and adhesives. Hy-Tape adhesive is waterproof and non-reactive, and it minimizes the appearance of surgical scars, such as after thyroid resection. Hy-Tape adhesive is ideally suited for use in patients with fragile and sensitive skin.

Health care professionals, including wound care providers, will find this guide to be a useful resource for the diagnosis and treatment of specific endocrine-related skin conditions.

This white paper covers the following topics:

Endocrine disorders and skin health
Risk factor identification
Specific endocrine disorders and their skin manifestations
Additional biological, lifestyle, and environmental factors
Selection of dressings and adhesives
Hy-Tape adhesives for endocrine-related cutaneous wounds

This paper is written for wound care clinicians and purchasing directors with an interest in product solutions. This paper was developed by an independent third party.
