Re: Diabetes Itching
I've been type 1 and on insulin for nearly 30 years. I have had itchy skin on my lower legs for the past 2 years, which drives me nuts! Mine is I believe mostly due to something other than diabetes. Did the itching start right after starting insulin? It is possible he could be having a reaction to the insulin. What type does he take? It sounds more like an allergic reaction to something. Any new soaps or detergents in the house? Anything going on with your water system? We have horrible water so I partially blame that plus I'm allergic to almost everything to begin with.
