Hi, Thanks for the query to H.C.M.C.
i.e. you are on Insulin
because a known case of type 1 diabetes
Itching particularly in the night time is a most common complaint of a diabetic patient.
Beside type one you have many sin diseases , these might be a complication of diabetes or otherwise.
For itching you have to take following precautions.
Before going to bed you have to take a bath ( water with savlon
solution) and also use permethrin soap , rinse the soap 2-3 minutes and than wash , cleanse with dry towel.
Now take a strong anti histamine
drugs ( fexofenadine
180 mg) after the advice of your physician.
Your's next query is pain (spasms ) in legs arms ( pain may muscular and also of bones) .
Peripheral neuropathy ( muscular twitching) are the most worrisome problems of diabetes so be sure that take regular inj. of INSULIN in proper doses without any interruption.
Most old diabetic patient become careless to their diabetes so please don't do this type of activities as this may harm you.
So on regular basis consult a diabetologist
and take his advice.
Good luck . Dr. HET
