    I too have Raynauds Disease for about 2 years now. I Have had Type 1 Diabetes for 36 years, but have always been in good control and have NO complications. I have wondered if there is a connection, but from what I understand, Raynauds has to do with the blood vessels, not the nerves. Would love to learn more about the connection.

    Raynaud’s phenomenon is a condition resulting in a particular series of changes in temperature. Skin discoloration occurs because an abnormal spasm of the blood vessels causes a diminished blood supply to the local tissues. I think that the women are mostly affected to this.

    This product can be very helpful and is now available in the USA. I bought my Heatbands originally from the UK but they are cheaper buying from the USA site http://www.heatbandsusa.com

    I’m a 54 year old female PWD Type 2 for 12 years now who was diagnosed with Raynauds Disease about 4 years ago. Like the author above wrote, I have Raynauds year round – I can turn blue in an air conditioned room in the middle of summer just as easily as being out doors in winter. I’ve become increasingly more concerned about the blue toes I get along with episodes of diabetic neuropathy. I worry that the decrease in circulation from the combination of diabetes, neuropathy and Raynauds are only going to cause more problems down the road. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
