Default Itchy Hands

Do anyone of you suffer from itchy palms? Lately my palms have been very itchy and red. They also feel tight. I was just wondering is this one of our symptoms of diabetes and if so do you have any solutions on how to rid my itchy hand problems? Thanks.

According to Dr. Google yes that can be a symptom. Getting BG under control will help

I get it quite badly now and again but haven't been able to tie it to BG levels yet although it might also be an allergic reaction to something.
It can also be a sigh of liver kidney problems.
Of you can get yourself checked out.

Thanks all. It is not that bad that I need to see a doctor just yet. Just curious as to if any one had the same experiences I had.

I don't have itching, just ... flaccid fingers. Weird -- slack, unsupported tissue and hard to get blood out!

The bottom of my left foot has been itchy, and I was wondering about that, too. It's just above and to the opposite side of the insole. No rash or anything. The reason I'm wondering if it's connected to diabetes is because I was off-plan, as they say, for the last couple of weeks, and had post-prandial numbers in the 160s about 8 times, and in the 140s at least 6 times.
