Skin problems - does a drop in Albumen levels lead to thinning skin?

My wife is on 4 times daily CAPD - I have noticed that her skin, especially on her arms, has become very thin - whilst she continues to get good results from her bloods, etc. she has been told her albumen levels are dropping - would this be causing the skin thinning or is it something that needs to be looked at further? Injuries such as scratches seem to take forever to heal.

  • Hi, is your wife taking steroids? These can cause skin to thin and become fragile.

  • NO. its about the one thing she's not on!!
