    I have lots of itching but I have had eczema way longer than I have had diabetes. Sounds like neuropathy to me. 😕

    Did you just start Metformin? When I started Metformin, I was the same way. I even got hives every night. Allergy pill took it away for me fast. After a few weeks , I have no side effects. I guess my body got used to the diabetes med

    A lot of diabetics end up with Fatty Liver Disease, which can end up with very itchy skin. When I switched to the Mediterranean Diet because I was diagnosed with NAFLD, the itching went away in a few days.
