so i been itchy lately. i take showers often. but its been weird some part (always changing) always itches. i googled it it said it was my type 2 diebetes and surface nereve damage. ive had various nerve damage problems since i was teens. well before getting bigger and having glucose problems. Google said its neuropathy in the skin layer nerves. i try not to itch hard enough to break the skin, i dont want infections. does anyone else have chronic itching?

      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.

      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
