Question from Georgia, USA:
I am 12 years old, have had diabetes for seven years, and have eczema (all around my nose and mouth). It never seems to get any better even with medication. I take Humalog, Regular, and Lente. My blood sugar has been running from 50 to 400 mg/dl [2.8 to 22.2 mmol/L]. Do you think that my diabetes has anything to do with my eczema?
Your diabetes and eczema are not directly related. However, high blood sugars will predispose you to skin infection which will obviously be more likely if you have broken skin.
