Skin disorders are stressful, affecting self-confidence, and causing itching which can affect sleep. The good news is that our comprehensive lab tests can determine what’s really causing the condition so you can start to put your skin condition behind you.
Skin is the largest organ of your body, accounting for about 16 percent of your body weight and covering the area approximately 2 square metres. Skin has a lot of functions for your body, such as regulating body temperature, defending the body from infections, protecting from sunlight, guarding from harmful chemicals and toxins, excreting waste products, producing vitamins and most importantly reflecting what is going on inside your body. If your body functions seamlessly, your skin tends to be healthy and strong. On the other hand, if your body does not function well, you can suffer from skin disorders, such as dry skin, skin irritation, acne, eczema, rash, dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea. If you find that these are the symptoms that you are facing and you have tried many ways to alleviate your condition, but still find that the problems are disturbing your days as well as your self-confidence, it is time for you to deeply look inside your body to seek for the root causes of the symptoms.
This lab test package will look deeply through the possible causes that lead to skin disorders, including inflammation, blood sugar, liver function, kidney function, stress, Thyroid hormone, vitamin deficiencies and gut health.
Gut health is probably one of the most important areas to consider when considering causes for skin disorders. the toxins and the imbalance of good and bad bacteria in your gut can elevate inflammation which can lead to skin disorders, such as chronic acne, rashes, skin irritations, breakdown of collagen production and redness. Internal inflammation, may be revealed in the form of skin rashes, such as eczema or psoriasis. Fluctuating blood sugar levels can also affect our skin. To illustrate, high blood sugar can dry out your skin, reduce your immunity and stimulate your inflammation. As a result, high blood sugar can lead to acne, eczema, rosacea, dermatitis and psoriasis. The liver and kidney are responsible for eliminating toxins from your body, but if their ability to excrete waste decreases, your body will find other pathways. Eliminating waste through your skin is one of the possible ways, resulting in dermatitis, itchy rashes, acne, rosacea, hives and eczema. Another noticeable factor causing skin disorders is stress. As stress causes your body to produce cortisol which orders your skin to produce more oil, your
skin tends to break out more when you are stressed. Moreover, stress can also impair your immune system, which means that your skin will be more prone to infections, psoriasis, rosacea and eczema. Another factor that can contribute to skin disorders is an imbalance in the Thyroid hormone. For those who have too little Thyroid hormone, such as hypothyroidism, flaky and dry skin may occur because the regulatory hormones responsible for skin renewal are diminished. Vitamin D deficiency can also affect the overall skin condition. Lack of Vitamin D can lead to slow wound healing, higher inflammation, dry skin, psoriasis and eczema. Vitamin B also plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin as it supports protection from sunlight and chemicals in personal care products. Lack of vitamin B can result in skin irritation, redness, acne, rashes and flaky skin.
