  • Wound Care Healing for Diabetics Wound Care Healing for Diabetics

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

    Those suffering from diabetes face many challenges in their life, but perhaps none is worse than the way diabetes interferes with the body's natural healing processes. For many with diabetes, wounds fail to close properly, or may not even heal at all. This makes it easy for those wounds to become infected, turning a small problem into a huge threat.  

    For a diabetic, even tiny wounds like scrapes and cuts can turn into a life-threatening situation. Diabetic wounds are a major concern for those afflicted.

    We, at Lavior, have developed products with extracts from Inula Viscosa, the "King of Medicinal Plants," which speeds up the wound care healing process.

     

    Introducing Inula Viscosa And Its Traditional Wound Care Healing Properties

    While largely unheard-of outside of the Mediterranean, Inula Viscosa has long been prized in local traditional medicine for its outstanding wound care healing properties. Inula Viscosa is a naturally growing perennial shrub which can be found around Israel, Palestine, and surrounding areas.

    What makes Inula Viscosa so notable is the resin produced by its leaves in the fall and winter. This resin has been shown to have superior anti-microbial properties, and extracts of the resin are even more effective. Products made from this extract are anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antifungal.  

    This makes it a perfect solution to the problem of diabetic wound care! Inula Viscosa extract can protect wounds from every source of infection, while reducing inflammation and encouraging natural healing. This speeds up each of the infected wound healing stages.

    A Scientific Solution To Diabetic Wound Care Healing

    D-CARE Natural Diabetic Wound Care Gel has been formulated specifically to meet the needs of diabetics, providing additional levels of protection for wounds that help prevent them from worsening. The proprietary Inula Viscosa extract is enhanced with a number of additional natural healing and moisturizing agents, making D-CARE one of the leading solutions for diabetic wound care healing.

    With years of scientific testing, and as an FDA-registered OTC drug, we can say that D-CARE:

    • Reduces swelling, and provides long-lasting pain relief
    • Promotes faster healing
    • Lowers the wound pH, to encourage wound healing
    • Softens scabs and stimulates blood circulation
    • Encourages faster skin repair and regeneration

    Better yet, D-CARE is a hypoallergenic, vegan-friendly, and cruelty-free wound healing cream. None of our products are ever tested on animals. You can improve your own health without hurting anything else!

  • Diabetes and Prevention Diabetes and Prevention

     diabetes prevention


    Diabetes is a heterogeneous chronic metabolic disorder that is characterized by elevated blood sugar levels, along with metabolic disturbances of all fuel providing compounds. All this happens either due to insulin resistance or deficit.  Disturbances of fat and protein metabolism in diabetes are as frequent as disturbances of glucose metabolism.

    Causes of diabetes are not fully understood. The family history of diabetes or genetics is a predisposing factor, but specific environmental factors like obesity, sedentary lifestyle and wrong kind of diet serve as triggering factors.

    Type 1 diabetes is a chronic autoimmune condition and is difficult to prevent. However preventing type 2 diabetes is possible with dietary and lifestyle changes.

    What happens in diabetes?

    Insulin is a hormone that is required by our body for energy generation and anabolic processes. In the deficit of insulin, our body cells are not able to properly use glucose for their energy needs; glucose fails to enter the muscles, liver and other cells of the body. In insulin deficit, all the construction processes in body slow down.

    Elevated glucose and disturbances of fat metabolism are harmful to the blood vessels. Thus diabetes is characterized by so-called macro and microvascular diseases. It is seen as damage to kidneys, eyesight, heart disease, increase in cases of stroke, neuropathies (damaged nerves), slower healing of wounds.

    Skin is one organ which becomes susceptible to infections. Due to a loss of sensation of limbs, chances of injury to extremities are elevated. Once injured, owing to neuropathies, inadequate blood supply, and persistent infections, healing process becomes painfully slow. In some individual’s chronic ulcers of limbs persist for months or even years. Infection of lower limbs is one of the leading non-traumatic causes of amputations.

    Preventing diabetes

    Diabetes is primarily a disease of lifestyle. Thus one of the most effective ways to stop this disorder is weight loss, dietary measures, and regular exercise.

    Weight loss: modern research shows that even 5-10% reduction in body weight (in obese people), may reduce the risk of developing diabetes by several times.

    Dietary measures: cutting back on refined carbs and sugary drinks will help maintain stable blood sugar levels and reduce the risk for diabetes. A registered dietitian (RD) or certified diabetes educator (CDE) can help create meal plans. The goal of the meal plan is to control blood glucose level and keep it in the healthy, normal range. 

    Regular exercise: a sedentary lifestyle has often been named are the number one killer of the 21st century. There is increasing evidence that sedentary lifestyle is causing more diseases than all other factors. Diabetes prevention studies carried out in the US, Europe, and Asian nations have shown that 150 minutes of aerobic exercise a week decreases the risk of developing diabetes by 50-70%. The minimum recommendation is of exercising at least 30 minutes five times a week.

     

    Skincare in diabetes

    Skin diseases in diabetes occur due to peripheral neuropathy causing loss of sensation, autonomic neuropathy leading to the dry and flaky skin, and inadequate blood supply due to diseased blood vessels. In diabetes, even a small scratch may get infected, because of elevated blood glucose level and slow down of the healing process, skin infections and ulcers are challenging to cure.

    Individuals living with diabetes have to take better care of their skin. It is recommended that people who have diabetes should check their feet on a daily basis, and should pay particular attention to the skincare, by regularly using hydrating agents along with anti-infective properties. Non-chemical based, natural creams and lotions may be especially beneficial in prevention and treatment of skin problems.

    Thus to prevent dry and cracked skin, it is highly recommended that a person uses moisturizer on a daily basis, not just any moisturizer, but one with anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties that can prevent the infection, help in healing the damage that has already occurred and can prevent or treat inflammation and swelling. Products based on natural ingredients are preferred as they are less irritating to skin on regular use.

  • Tips for Preventing Diabetic Foot Ulcers and Wounds Tips for Preventing Diabetic Foot Ulcers and Wounds

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion

                                                  

     

    According to the World Health Organization, 8.5% of the world’s adult population is diabetic and the prevalence is rising. Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disorder of carbohydrate metabolism, that is characterized by elevated blood sugar (hyperglycemia) due to lack of insulin or inability of the body to respond to the available insulin. The persistent elevated blood sugar has deleterious effects (complications) on various body tissue/organs.

    Diabetic foot ulcer is one of the common and serious complications in diabetic patients. The ulceration of the foot, if not treated promptly, may lead to gangrene of the whole foot necessitating amputation. Diabetes Mellitus is the leading cause of non-traumatic foot/leg amputation.

    Narrowing of the blood vessels with reduction in blood supply to the lower extremities, inability to feel pain and pressure sensations due to damage to the peripheral nerves and infections are some of the predisposing factors for diabetic wound.

    Ulcer on the leg and foot significantly affects the quality of life in diabetic patients. Thus, nothing can be more important than prevention. Diabetic wound is largely preventable and some of the prevention tips are as follows:

    Ensure optimal blood sugar control: since most of the complications of diabetes are directly or indirectly due to elevated blood sugar, adequate blood sugar control will help reduce the risk of diabetic ulcer.

    Avoid too loose/tight footwear: when it is too tight, it will exert pressure on the bony prominences and this may lead to ulceration. When it is too loose, your foot can slip out of it and you may step on stones/sharp object. Your footwear should provide adequate cushioning.

    Get your feet inspected daily: You can do this by yourself and allow your family members to assist you. This will ensure that any skin changes such as blisters or cracks can be detected early before a wound develops. Regular foot examination by your physician is also important.

    Ensure extra care while cutting your toe nails, if possible, don’t do it yourself. Diabetes also affects the eye and a poor sight can make you injure yourself while cutting your toe nails.

    Do not smoke or quit smoking: smoking will further compromise blood supply to your feet and prevents healing if a wound should develop.

    Use moisturizers: one of the signs that your foot is at risk of ulceration is dry skin. This is a pointer to inadequate blood supply and dry skin easily get wounded. Moisturize your skin to prevent chapping, especially in cold or windy weather. Don’t put lotions between toes. The extra moisture in this area can cause fungus to grow.

    Treat cuts right away. Wash minor cuts with soap and water and apply antiseptic ointment.

    Avoid harsh ingredients or chemicals and instead choose a mild shampoo and soap.

    LAVIOR has therefore developed natural products, whose efficacies have been clinically proven, regarding prevention and treatment of diabetic ulcers. These products include: M-CARE & D-CARE, and a mild shampoo H-CARE.

    M-CARE is an organic moisturizer that will prevent dry skin and significantly reduce the risk of ulceration or cracks. It is steroid-free and does not provoke allergic reaction. It also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, making it a good preventive agent.

    D-CARE is another product that can serve both preventive and therapeutic functions. It does not contain steroids, it does not provoke allergy, and it soothes the skin, preventing cracks and fissures. It also accelerates wound healing by its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

    H-CARE is a plant based chemical free and non-irritant formula safe for all skin types including diabetics and those with sensitive skin.

  • Fighting the battle of diabetic wounds (and winning!) Fighting the battle of diabetic wounds (and winning!)

    Posted on by Anabelle Savion



    Diabetes is a serious life-long health condition that occurs when the amount of glucose (sugar) in the blood is too high because the body can't use it properly. For those who suffer from diabetes and for countless others who are plagued by the discomfort, irritation and pain of diabetic wounds, there is hope. There is the promise of soothing, healing and yes, even winning the often endless, uphill battle of diabetic wounds. Of this we know for sure.

    Wound healing and especially diabetic wound healing, have long been the challenges of modern medicine. But more often than not, treatment with popular over the counter ointments and creams, are no longer tall tales or our grandmother's magic potions. Topical skincare treatments are now gaining the attention and respect of the medical community. Wound healing as a medical specialty and as a subject of medical research, finally has a seat at the table – and new soothing and healing alternatives are giving chronic sufferers… hope.  

    Your skin – your choice

    Diabetic foot wounds are a common complication for diabetics. Of the nearly 30 million people with diabetes in the U.S. alone, 15% will develop a foot ulcer at some point in their lives, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). These numbers are astounding and are only on the rise each and every day.

    The more we understand how skin actually heals and how important skin revitalizing is in the journey towards improved skin health, those of us with diabetic wounds have a far better chance of healing. We can, essentially, soothe and improve and even 'repair' the toughest-to-heal diabetic wounds and yes, the choice is yours.

    Helping your skin to help itself

    It's a well-known fact that repairing the skin when it's injured or damaged, is the key to keeping our bodies intact. As part of our natural metabolism, once we are hurt or inflicted by a chronic illness, such as diabetes, our bodies work hard to get the healing process started. Cells are in motion, blood vessels ban together to fight infection – all of this to promote new skin growth and protect the infected areas.

    Our skin needs to continue "working" and regenerating and we are ultimately responsible for helping it to heal. Diabetic wounds affect our entire body, but the possibility of soothing and healing inflamed and infected areas, will help the overall healing process. At LAVIOR, we truly understand your skin's need… to heal. 

    Here, the healing begins

    LAVIOR offers diabetic wound sufferers a viable alternative to popular off the shelf remedies, with an advanced line of products that effectively heal diabetic wounds and ulcers. After years of market research, intensive product analysis and testing and a deep understanding of the make-up of diabetic wounds, LAVIOR has developed a line of skincare solutions to soothe and heal diabetic wounds and sores.

    Based on a unique combination of Inula Viscosa, deemed the "King of Medicinal Plants," LAVIOR skincare products feature anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-oxidant properties, to effectively soothe and heal damaged or irritated skin. What makes us so uniquely different from comparable skincare products, is that we actually grow and cultivate our own exclusive type of Inula Viscosa, the richest and most potent of this plant species. 

    LAVIOR's product line includes "D-Care" for the treatment of diabetic wounds and "Organic Moisturizer" to soothe dry and cracked skin, often the result of diabetic wounds, especially foot ulcers and bed sores. When applied directly to the wound, our products quickly penetrate the tissue and reduce inflammation, promoting wound healing and closure.

    In a word, LAVIOR effectively helps you – help your skin to heal, ultimately, helping you to fight, and we hope, 'win' the battle of diabetic wounds.
