:confused: I have a client who is bringing her mum tomorrow for a deluxe manicure, not sure yet if she wants the Solar Manicure or Spa manicure, her daughter has asked me if her mum is okay to have this treatment as she is diabetic, pardon my ignorance but I didnt know what to say. Can anyone help with this request she will be here at 10.00 am Friday,

Thanks
Carol(Cottage Nails) :confused:

Whew!! glad I spotted this post before your 10:00 appointment.

If a client is diabetic, it does not contraindicate a manicure.

You must be very gentle and careful not to abrade or cut the skin around the nailplate ... diabetics have very poor circulation in their hands and feet and healing is a slow process and wounds can becme badly infected very easily.

As an illness, diabetes is very well managed these days and normally diabetics lead very normal lives (my mother had this condition so I know it well). Just take care and let your client know you are taking care.

As nail technicians we should treat all clients as if they were diabetic and maybe there would be less willfull damage done to nails.

As Geeg said not to cut the skin is your primary concern with a Diabetic but, I think Mitts will be ok. Have you tried using the search facility to see if this has come up before?
Sorry cant be of more help.... Didnt want you to think your pleas were being ignored, xx.
