    One that you didn’t mention is eczema. I’m not sure that it’s related to diabetes, but I just found out that my itchy and peeling hands are due to this wonderful condition (which may itself be due to allergise)! I have a medicated lotion that does make it feel so much better. It has been a problem for a few years and I just got it diagnosed a couple of months ago.

    After 17 years of type 1, I blame everything that goes wrong with me on diabetes though :)

    Watching Vitiligo grow on the backs of my hands over the last 10 years has been absolutely fascinating. On the face it looks like I don’t wash, but luckily I can grow a full beard and cover most of it.

    Weirdly, my dad had Vitiligo all over his face, hands & shoulders. He was dx’d with diabetes around age 58, but told he had type 2. I now think about the Vitiligo (an autoimmune condition!) and wonder if he really was a LADA, like me.

    You know that someone is going to have to Google diabetic blisters! I have had some blisters popping up on my foot for no reason. I should have known that a fellow PWD would figure it out!
