Went to the derm too! said nothing we can do about it... like the others i have tried lighteners.. nothing has worked.. the derm md said nothing would work...
just a symptom of early diabetes/insulin levels out of wack!... even though glucose levels are normal.. (so are mine and they are going down even further since i started AD).
They came on for me when i gained my last 30 pounds...
MD said it would go away once I reached a "normal weight"??
I have it on the back of my neck, inside of my elbows and it was starting on my wrists... but since I started AD the wrists have cleared up!
It is kind of one of those medical triads... PCOS, Diabetes/Insulin and overweight...but if we can overcome the roundness and be a "normal-healthy" weight.. all of this should go away.
It is becoming very common ... now with so many people o/weight. And medical providers are seeing it more.
I know the feeling.. when i get my blood drawn.. I start explaining that it is a skin condition and NOT my lack of showering!! Ha!
Luisa, thanks for starting this thread and thanks for letting me write!
