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