    Hello All,

    T1D for 5.5 years now.

    Recently, I have been getting an itchy feeling in my toes - like on the inside - nothing I do makes it go away. This happens during the day and then I feel itchy at my toe joints (to the base of my feet, if that makes sense).

    Could this be a nerve issue? Or?

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    I had that before my T1 was diagnosed. I thought I was allergic to something but it was the effect of sugars running in the 30/40s.

    What is your BG like during the day? Are you running high?
