Herpes on the lip can hide an insidious and dangerous disease and these symptoms should be watched for

The presence of herpes on your lip may not be as trivial and harmless as you might think. We must be very careful and now we explain why.

It must be admitted that most people suffer from herpes a lot. Among these, we also find many kids, who feel a certain embarrassment. Indeed, how to blame them? They are already dealing with acne that storms their face, hormones a thousand and problems typical of that age.


But besides them, as anticipated above, there are many people who find themselves struggling with herpes. You want stress, you want anxiety, you want delicate skin that isn’t protected from the sun, you want the flu: in short, herpes will find a way to appear. In addition to hurting due to swelling, it is not so much a problem that generates aesthetic discomfort, as a clear and proper alarm. To be honest, when herpes appears it means that something is wrong with our health. To tell us this is another research published in the scientific journal “Diabetology“.

The study was conducted by German researchers, who found that herpes is associated with prediabetes. So, that looks like a trivial bubble destined to become a crust that time will sweep away, has a much deeper value. Staying on the subject of diabetes, and knowing how cholesterol is one of the most influential causes, we point out two important articles. The first talks about how the sensation of strange smells is a symptom that should not be underestimated. While, the second, on the contrary, is an aid against this problem: we are talking about the extraordinary vegetable able to fight it effectively. After this little preamble, we can focus on the recently published study.

Why beware of herpes and what is prediabetes

The aforementioned research is just the umpteenth that shows that herpes is a wake-up call for very serious health problems. In particular, in this case, we are talking about prediabetes, a defined metabolic state that precedes what will be type 2 diabetes. To be even more clear, prediabetes refers to that situation in which blood levels are higher than normal. However, however, that condition it is not yet to be defined as type 2 diabetes. However, according to other studies, the metformin and theacarbose should reduce the possibility of reaching the level of type 2 diabetes mellitus by 25-30% in patients with prediabetes. Experts also argue that doing dell‘physical activityat moderate intensity, at least for 30 minutes a day, should reduce blood sugar.

The premises

But returning to the focus of the discourse, it must be anticipated that the researchers themselves have stated that their research is only of a preliminary type. Therefore, everything that is said must always be taken with a grain of salt. Of course, it is known how cholesterol, high blood sugar levels and obesity are among the main causes of such a situation. So, even if herpes has a small responsibility in this regard, it is fair to ask how the underlying virus can bind to diabetes. The researchers were unable to answer this question. There are, therefore, only mere assumptions and it is necessary to deepen the subject with other studies.

What do we know about the research

The dynamics of the study saw these researchers monitor thousands of people for 7 years. 360 of them have developed gods “Markers of prediabetes”. Among them, those who fell ill with prediabetes were shown to have two different herpesvirus infections. We are talking, in more detail, about herpes simplex virus 2 and cytomegalovirus. The study has shown how the first, compared to the second, favors more the onset of prediabetes. We are talking about 59% more chance than the 33% of cytomegalovirus.
