I have just recently been diagnosed with scleredema diabeticorum (Buschke's disease). It's a painful skin irritation on my neck and shoulders, and comes from glucose build-up over the years within the collagen in my skin.
Yes, my sugar's haven't been under control as much as they should - but things changed this summer and I am well under control, and bringing my A1C's down from their existing level (over 8).
This skin condition is painful and I have been losing sleep, waking from the pain. My dermatologist is doing injections within my skin every few weeks, but even she indicated that this can take a long time to remedy - if at all.
Looking to see if anyone else might have it - and maybe build a conversation around the topic. If so, please message me.
