Necrobiosis Lipoidica - Treatments

(Georgina) #1


I am newly diagnosed with this, I don’t have diabetes or at least I don’t yet although the doctors say the likelihood is I will get it eventually.

I am looking for any help/ support with successful treatments, I haven’t managed to stop crying since finding out. I have searched everywhere but keep hitting dead ends.

I would also like to know if anyone knows if you can still Ski with this disease. I was almost a competitive skier and it is a big part of my life. I know that contact sports can make the marks worse and I with skiing of course you are in a tight fitting boot and prone to hard falls. I am worried because at this stage I don’t think I could loose this part of myself too.

any tips or help my appreciated.
