Diabetes and Microdermals

Hi, I’m a 27 year old diabetic. I have been for 10 years. I have fairly good control of my blood sugars. I currently have 15 piercings. All in good health. I’m really wanting to get a micro-dermal on my temple or anti eyebrow. Thing is I do not heal very well. I have had a hard time with the last two piercings I got most of all. Which were my tragus and labret. Both took very long to heal. Also both ended up infected despite careful aftercare. I guess I’m asking are my chances of rejection the same as a non-diabetic? Is the aftercare or jewelry different for me? Is there a chance a piercer will turn me away due to my condition? I haven’t come across any other diabetics w/ any mods other than basic piercings/tattoos. So I hope this is the right place for answers. Any other info or comments I would really appreciate. Thanks

While diabetes does create a difficult healing situation it is not impossible by any means. You have a couple of positives going for you, you are in good control of your blood sugars and you have experience healing 15 piercings. There is no reason a competent piercer should turn you down for this but it is something that you should inform them of.

As far as aftercare the only difference would be length of time. While a micro dermal in perfect conditions can heal in several months yours might be longer. Just follow your piercers recommended aftercare and you should be fine.

  1. Thanks for the response. I’m glad there are no big red flags or definite reasons I should not do this. I’ve been asking around and I found a very qualified piercer with great personal reviews, who will do the microdermal. Plus, I have done some research and found a few procedural videos about them. I defiantly got the itch now. :)
