Warning Sign #2: Acanthosis Nigricans

If you are speaking with your doctor for any reason, you should always let them know about anything that appears to be unusual on your skin. Even though you might think it is not relevant, it could turn out to be a strong indicator of a potentially serious underlying condition.

One potential warning sign of diabetes is acanthosis nigricans. This is a condition that causes dark patches of skin to form on the groin, armpits, and neck. These odd patches of dark skin are often described as having a velvety feel and texture to them. You should see a doctor if unusual patches like this are found on the skin.
