I was diagnosed with NLD today. It mostly occurs in diabetic women. Only 3 in 1000 diabetis have it. Anyway, it is like a nasty rash on my shins. I've been given a steroid ointment to use on it. The doctor said something about inflamation of the little blood vessels. I've had Type 1 for 39 years and really don't have much in the way of complications. Does anyone else have any experience with this condition?
