Default Acanthosis Nigricans?

Okay, so I have some pretty bad Acanthosis Nigricans on my inner thighs, and a little bit (but not horrible like my thighs) on other parts of my body, simply from beings as large as I am. I'm wondering if anyone out there has/had the same issue and whether losing the weight made it go away, or at least improved it?

I have it between thighs, elbows and ankles.

It's the Insulin Resistance. Though my IR is under control and my a1c's come back fine, I have no idea how long it will be before it fades. Endoc has no clue either.

But still trying to lose weight, so we'll see what we see when I get there.

GL!

Yes, most of mine went away with my Insulin Resistance, about 20 pounds ago. I do have a little left on my inner thighs, but it's 90% gone from elbows, knees, back of the neck. I can wear my hair in a ponytail again without being self-conscious!

Glad it went away for you, Slytherinanachronism. Gives me hope, too, lol.
