Question from Illinois, USA:
I am a senior citizen, have had type 2 diabetes for about three years, and the skin on my lower legs is shiny. What causes this?
The skin may shine because it has experienced changes. These may include the collection of fluid underneath the surface of the skin, a thinning of the layer of skin under the surface, or a change in the composition of the skin. Please share this question with your physician to see if a specific cause can be identified.
