Diabetes Itching And Chills?
excuse me doctor, my mother is 48 years old, has diabetes. The skin all over the body has been injured due to itching. The main complaint is often itching all over the body and sometimes feels a bit hot, but if you are cold the whole body does not feel itchy but cold to shivering. Sometimes you also experience dizziness and ulcers. , thank you.
Diabetes can indeed cause itchy skin complaints and peripheral nerve disorders such as hot skin if blood sugar levels are very high. Of course this can be overcome by regulating and controlling your mother's blood sugar levels properly through:
Adjust your diet with a balanced healthy diabetes diet. You can consult a nutritionist to get a portion of a healthy balanced diet according to your mother. Do sports according to age continuously and increase slowly. Exercise is considered to be the best tool to control blood sugar levels and increase insulin sensitivity which is impaired in diabetes, so it can improve and lower blood sugar levels. Manage stress. Avoid scratching itching. You can take an antihistamine or apply calamine lotion to relieve the itching sensation. Increase your intake of vegetables and fruit. Get plenty of water. Take sugar medicine regularly as directed by your doctor. If the mother's condition does not improve, then you can invite your mother to consult with a sub-endocrinologist who can treat diabetes. With the best examination and treatment, your mother can get a healthy productive life even with diabetes.
May your mother always be healthy.
I hope this helps.
