Insulin-resistant acanthosis nigricans, type A

Common Name(s)

Insulin-resistant acanthosis nigricans, type A

Type A insulin resistance syndrome is a rare disorder that affects children and adults. It occurs when a person’s body no longer responds properly to insulin. People are usually diagnosed when they are children but it can also be diagnosed in adulthood. Insulin is a messenger that tells the body to break down sugars to make energy needed for daily life. One of the symptoms of type A insulin resistance is acanthosis nigricans. Acanthosis nigricans occurs when a person’s skin gets a dark, velvety look. It can usually be seen in the folds of someone’s skin, around their neck and armpits. People with type A insulin resistance can usually manage it through diet and exercise changes along with medications. Talk with your doctor to find the best treatment for you if you have been diagnosed with type A insulin resistance.
