Diabetic Dermopathy and How to Save Our Skin from
Overview Diabetic dermopathy is commonly termed
as pigmented pretibial patches or shin spots. It
is the type of diabetes skin problem that usually
affects the lower portion of the legs. Diabetic
Dermopathy is believed to have developed from
changes that occurred in the blood vessels. These
changes result in the leakage of blood products
from the blood vessels to the skin. That results
in the formation of lesions-like structure. The
root cause of this skin problem has not yet been
identified. Trauma or injury in diabetic patients
is believed to cause diabetic dermopathy. Also,
the disease shows no evident variations between
the non-insulin dependent and insulin-dependent
diabetic patients.

chances of being affected by diabetes skin
problem. More than 50 of the people are found to

are attacked by Diabetes dermopathy. People
without diabetes can have skin lesions too, but
only after an injury. What is Diabetes and Its
Uncommon Symptoms? Causes The exact reason for
diabetes dermopathy has not yet been identified.

neuropathic complications. Diabetic patients with
neuropathy, nephropathy, and retinopathy suffer
too. Patients who have had diabetes for more than
10-20 years are at higher risks. Diabetes skin
lesions are associated with glycosylated
haemoglobin. That is an indication of
un-controlled blood sugar level. Diabetic
dermopathy could respond to a traumatic situation
or an injury. It generally, affects the bony
parts of the body such as the shins. Signs and
Symptoms Generally, diabetic dermopathy or
Diabetes skin rash will vary in the colours and
textures of skin lesions formed. It at times
appears as pink to red, and in others, it is
either tanned or forms dark brown patches. These
dark spots usually affect the lower parts of the
legs. These patches are scaly and are either oval
or round. Long-standing patches turn out to be
