Loss of muscle strength, rashes, leg cramps, elevated A1C, now taking 36 units of Lantos and darkening of skin in rash areas, toes getting discolored reddish in areas. Also walked 5 to 7 miles before repathia. Read in mayo news letter that anti inflammatory drug was used with a steroid to help regain muscle again. Gave article to PvP but no results or from. Cardio office.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with the skin issue? Have you noticed any major changes in your overall skin or nails recently?

Yes

No. Cardiologist who recommended repathia also does not have and either.

you should see a rheumatologist for a full workup

or a good internist

you need more labs done for this

is this helpful?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
