  1. Pancreatitis - onset of scleroderma

    Thanks for the insight:)
  2. I wanted to share more of my story. I recently joined the forum and asked about removing telangiectasia from my face. So in 2005 I was brought down by a serious case of pancreatitis. 32 days in the hospital. Crazy long. Anyway, about 75% of my pancreas is not functional. I became a type 1 diabetic and insulin dependent. I was not diagnosed with anything and the doctors did not know why I got the pancreatitis. At the time I was 30 years old and drinking some alcohol but not enough to get pancreatitis from but doctors suspected maybe alcohol. I then just to be cautious did not drink at all for 6 years. During this period I also developed Raynaud's with some digital ulcers on and off. and I have vitiligo (white blotches) on legs and couple on chest and back. And I also have noticeable telangiectasia on my face. As you now can tell I had enough symptoms to be diagnosed. I haven't had any more issues with my pancreas other than it not producing insulin. I have started drinking again, just socially. But do think about sometimes if the alcohol could bring a bout of pancreatitis back? I know this disease is so unpredictable and anything can happen but I don't want it to run my life so I am going to do my best with it and do want I want to do -with some caution. Anybody out there had pancreatitis with scleroderma? Thanks for listening, Jeremy

  4. Telangiectasia

    Hi Ann, Thank you for your reply. It sounds like it may be hopeful with the right doctor. Did you use IPL or APL laser treatment? I appreciate all of the info. Jeremy

  6. Telangiectasia

    Hi Just joined this forum today. I have had limited scleroderma CREST for about 11 years now. I want to get advice on removing telangiectasia on the face with laser. What is best recommendation from someone that actually had it done, did they came back? It has been bothering me for a couple of years now. Probably bothering now more because I am recently divorced and want to start dating again. lol Thanks, Jeremy
