Common Questions and Answers about Cracked lips diabetes

lip

Dehydration is the commonest cause of dry cracked lips. Drink plenty of water and see. The other possibility is iron and Vit B deficiency. A lip balm preferably petroleum jelly, Vit B supplements, iron, and honey should help. They can also be caused by allergies and infections. You could either be suffering from contact dermatitis or from allergy to some food. You should get an allergy test done, either a skin test or RAST, to know what you are allergic to.
Hi, This could be a part of Cheilitis, which is a medical condition involving inflammation of the lip. Or a bad case of Chapped lips , a condition whereby the lips become dry and possibly cracked. It may be caused by the evaporation of moisture. Lip balm can often provide temporary relief, though it should not be used extensively. One should avoid licking their lips as saliva contains the enzyme amylase, which can damage the already compromised lip tissue.
Herpes infection is another possibility if there is a history of kissing or sexual contact (can get aggravated in presence of vitamin deficiencies, dry cracked lips, infections etc). Also get your blood sugar checked both fasting and two hour after food to know what if you have diabetes. Hypothyroidism too can cause this. A lip balm preferably petroleum jelly, Vit B supplements, iron, and honey should help. If it does not help, please consult a skin specialist. Take care!
If you peel this dry skin, the healing process starts all over again with dry skin on your lip. Dehydration is the commonest cause of dry cracked lips. Drink plenty of water and see. The other possibility is iron and Vit B deficiency. Along with multivitamin B (not a multivitamin which also has other vitamins) take an iron preparation and see. They can also be caused by allergies and infections. You could either be suffering from contact dermatitis or from allergy to some food.
Lip Moisturizer (it's in the blue tube) almost constantly and drinking about 8 glasses of water a day. My lips were the opposite though. They split and cracked on the outside but itched and swelled on the inside. It may seem like a pain but the chapstick really help- and I do mean specifically that one. Mine got so bad that neosporin, abreva, blistex, carmax, even bagbalm did nothing for it. I tried everything and that's all that works if I let it get bad.

I'm drinking close to 100 ounces of water or Gatorade a day but I still feel dehydrated. My lips, toes and finger tips are all dried and cracked. Before I was pregnant I didn't drink this much fluid and never had this issue. Is this normal?
I really watched how much I drank yesterday and felt extremely dehydrated; even to the point my lips were cracked and my mouth was dry (literally no saliva). Back in 2004 at age 37, I woke up with horrible left flank pain; frequent urination 40-60 times daily 8-10 times nightly; extreme fatigue “flu – like feeling”; peripheral edema; my dr did tests...everything from urinalysis, cultures to IVP; to US; nothing was found except severe endometriosis & adenomyosis both female related.
I have history of antibiotics during the pregnancy and I had gestational diabetes - blood sugar probably ok now. Oh, I do have yeast infection down there that she agreed to treat with canesten pessaries. I also have sore tongue/mouth - again no obvious white spots, and am having large, soft and foul No. 2s (sorry for being graphic) with stomach cramping / pains (feels a bit like menstrual cramping).
so do u guys think that just kissing him alone will be risky,like if i had dry n cracked lips.
My penis recently broke out with skin ripping off (exposing a bright pink underneath skin) which has burned very bad, the rim around the penis on the right side is swollen and is producing a white goo (could be fungus), it has an odd odor and the cracked skin spread throughout the head of my penis and now it burns every time I have to go use the bathroom, and my boxers constantly stick to the penis where the cracks are trying to heal only re-ripping the skin.
With that being said, my kidneys, pancreas area hurts so bad, and the part of my stomach between my ribs spasms. I was just in the hospital for 6 days, and got a stent put in my pancreas, and my mouth, lips, bottom all swolled up. I am still in so much pain! They want to take the stent out as of tomorrow. My liver enzymes are way off the charts. I don't know what to do anymore. I am trying to get to Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. I feel like I am dying, and noone is helping me.
People suggest that I try and drink less water, however depriving myself of water for even just 3 hours and dehydration symptoms begin (dry mouth, cracked lips, fatigue, headache). I have been tested for Diabetes and Thyroid both negative. My blood work shows high cholesterol (runs in my family) and high WBC. I recently had a CT Urogram and have not yet received the results. Other than the annoyance of these symptoms, I feel great! I haven't been sick or even had a cold in over 5 years.

I cut the invega in half and took it along with the lexapro b4 bed that night and did the same on tues and wed, on wed several hrs after taking them I cracked open a beer and by the time I took the 4th sip I felt a cold feeling run from my feet up through the rest of my body, my heart rate skyrocketed, my lips drew up, and a terrible pain went through my chest. When the ambulance arrived they checked my vitals and they were all off.
I can't say that it was not hard, the treatment was brutal. My lips cracked and bled everyday. I had scbs in my nose that lasted until the end of May and my skin was so dry that it would bleed. I also felt depressed. Now, after all of that i still feel that I would do it again. I have to say that now my pores are getting somewhat more oily again but it seems more excessive to me than to anyone else. You have never suffered from dry skin like this before!
Things became even worse during lyme treatment I had an irregular heart rythm along with a strong beat that felt like my heart was going to beat out of my chest, insulin resistance, low blood pressure, and low blood sugar (reactive hypoglycemia), headaches, severe migraines, neck tightness, joint pain, severe muscle pain, eye dryness, severe light sensitivity, burning skin on hands and feet, skin dryness, puffy eyes, water retention, all over body nerve pain, terrible feet pain, calf pain, h
Why do you weigh under 100 pounds? Is it that your mouth sores prevent you from eating? Is it that you are on too much Synthroid? What dosage are you taking? What are your current TSH, FT3, FT4 levels? Find out what's making you hypo. Is it Hashimoto's? TGab and TPOab blood tests plus thyroid ultrasound will determine Hashi. Find a good endo, one who specializes in thyroid, not diabetes. Here's a link I used to find my new endocrinologist: http://www.thyroid-info.
Oil pulling has been used extensively for many years, without scientific evidence or proof, as a traditional Indian folk remedy to prevent teeth decay, oral malodor, bleeding gums, dryness of throat and cracked lips, and for strengthening the teeth, gums, and jaws.
All 3 times I left the hospital so dehydrated that my lips were cracked and bleeding. Not once did they call my Ob/gyn in,nor any other doctor for that matter. DH and I decided about an hour ago that we will go into the city and never return to this hospital again. When I finally saw my Ob last week I asked her why they would dehydrate a pregnant woman. Her answer? They had been planning to do an emergency c-section on me. What for? They didn't know why I was bleeding. So why cut me open?
I have a white coated tongue and it burns and feels almost like sandpaper. My lips too are dry and cracked constantly. My mouth is very dry. I have good and bad news. The good is that it could be only a yeast infection in your mouth called thrush. The bad news is that ive been treated for thrush 3 or 4 times in my 4 year quest to get rid of this. Your symptoms sound like thrush as does mine. My symptoms have alleviated in the past year or two but it is still slightly there.
All I know is that $7.00 worth of dog medicine cured my ringworm and cracked lips in about three days time! I can only wonder what a dermatologist's treatment would have cost me. Love ya, J.B.
Still out of breath - dizzy etc. My lips really swelled this week and cracked - used everything but seems it helped to use yeast treatment (Monistat) a few times. The days after Enbrel are worse than the days after Peg. My RA really seems to flare. Both cause Migraines as well. Been taking a combination of 1/2 maxalt and 1/2 Zomig to handle them. We think I will only do 16 weeks of tx. May 30th - 2008- Took my 8th shot - tried to go back up a bit to 150 - horrible week...saw the Dr.
Cognitive issues, forgetfulness, fatigue, anxiety, depression, mouth ulcers, cracked lips If done with tx are you clear? I was undetected during treatment, but when i had the 6 month post tx blood tests results showed the virus had returned, so I am a Relapser. Its quite a journey and one that we all go on differently, I wish you well with yours, and hope you dont get too discouraged. We can only try cant we. Good luck.
yellow tongue, exhausted/tired, cold, overly runny nose - blowing it all the time/running down my face randomly, had a UTI a few months ago - feeling like i might have one again, very dry mouth, cracked lips, dry skin, had pnmeonia a few weeks ago that was also possibly bronchitis. lung exray was fine last time i went to the dr.
What's funny is, I'm the exact same person I was before the test (I already had it , maybe even as a little kid, everyon in my family kisses on the lips all the time, never a big deal), but now that I have this knowledge I feel way different. If I tell people, will they even want to be with me? Who knows. I feel like I'm heading for a very lonely life.
