NAPLES, Fla., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- November is American Diabetes month. According to the American Diabetes Association, 29.1 million Americans have diabetes. Diabetes mellitus is a group of metabolic disorders resulting from excess inflammation and hyperglycemia. Individuals with diabetes frequently have skin issues that can lead to diabetic foot ulcers and amputations. The At Home™ Viniferamine ® Diabetic Skin Care Kit was created by D. Elizabeth McCord, PhD, FAPWCA to improve the quality of skin care for diabetics at home. At Home™ Viniferamine ® skin care kits are readily available in the first aid aisle of over 3,800 CVS Pharmacy locations to help individuals with diabetes take care of their skin and feet. They are also available online at CVS.com.
The Diabetic Skin Care Kits, along with seven other skin care kits include specialized products, as well as educational booklets. They were created by Dr. McCord to help individuals with specific skin care issues, including diabetic skin issues, use hospital-grade skin and wound care treatment protocols. Individuals with diabetes frequently do not have access to the skin and wound care products they need, and out-of-pocket expenses are a major barrier. To help make hospital-grade skin and wound care more available and affordable, these easy-to-use kits are reasonably priced at below twenty dollars per kit. Specific skin care issues are addressed by each kit, including diabetic skin care. The front of the cartons display a clinical image of the skin care issue for easy recognition. The Diabetic Skin Care Kit includes two specialized products to moisturize and protect dry, chapped or cracked skin frequently associated with diabetes that can lead to foot ulcers. The potent small molecule nutritional ingredients in the products also help decrease inflammation and strengthen skin to help individuals with diabetes avoid foot ulcers.
