I have seen the other threads but wonder if anyone has other opinions. I am type 2 and my last Hbaic was 5.7. My average fbg is 5.9 to 6.1. I get this crazy itching on back of arms and on lower rib cage - particularly on waking. Only treatment appears to be hydrocortisone cream which is not the most recommended treatment I know. Anyone else with simple cures?
