I do not go to the dr. often and last time I went I asked him about my feet and why they were now speckled like an old ladys hands get with liver spots. They did not give an answer and told me to go to a dermatologist. Well I haven't. I noticed this change of coloring to my feet and part of my lower legs after I had been taking medicine for a seizure I had had. I know this medicine messes with the liver so I stopped... during this time I also had changes in pigment of my arms also. My question to you is .... Is this that neuropothy you mentioned in a post?? I do not have dibetes but think I might be pre-diabetic. I do notice this seems to change sometimes when I am eating a raw living food lifestyle (predominately).
I'm sorry not to have answered you before now but I'm feeling my way around here right now. The pump is a batter operated machine that is on you all the time, it gives you a basel rate of insulin every hour and you count the carbs your gonna eat and give yourself a bolus for everytime you eat. I love it because it gives me more freedom to eat when I want and kinda what I want. I use the MiniMed mysely but thereare 2 more out there. I have been on it for on and off 20 years and it has helped me control my diabetes. I for years have been considered a brittle diabetic ( really, really hard to control) and rhe Dr put me on it when I found out I was expecting my 1st daughter then 17 months later I gave birth to my 2nd so needless to say went off it for a VERY short time then went back on it. Did the pancres transplant was not a diabetic for 2 years give or take and after 7 different rejection episodes lost the organ and got diabetes agian. Then went back on the pump again. Sorry for so much info but that's the way it works for me for others it's different.
