Study: Skin Problems Responsible For Most Visits To Physicians

Medscape reports, “Most patients without acute conditions see their physicians not because of diabetes, heart disease, or cancer but because of skin problems, joint disorders, and back pain, according to an article published in the January issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings.” Investigators came to this conclusion after analyzing “the medical records of residents of Olmstead County, Minnesota, as of April 1, 2009, through the Rochester Epidemiology Project medical records linkage system.” The researchers found that skin problems were the most common ailment, with nearly “half of the population (42.7%)” having “at least one code for a skin condition within approximately 5 years.”
