Causes of Itchy Skin With Diabetes and Kidney DiseaseKidney disease is a common complication of diabetes. Under this condition, persons with diabetes and kidney disease will have many symptoms. This article is mainly about the causes of itchy skin with this illness condition.


1. Infections

In people with diabetes, a yeast infection is the common cause of itchy skin. This yeast-like fungus creates a red, itchy rash, frequently surrounded by small blisters and scales, that is usually found in warm, moist areas like armpits or between the toes.

2. Toxins accumulation

These uremic toxins may irritate nerve endings in the skin, resulting in itching.

3. High phosphorus level

Damaged kidneys cannot maintain the balance of calcium and phosphorus. As a result, calcium and phosphorus combines to form crystals that deposit in the skin to cause skin itching.

4. Allergic reactions

Allergic skin reactions can sometimes occur in response to medicines. You should see your doctor if you think you are having a reaction to a medicine. Be on the lookout for rashes starting soon after you have commenced a new medicine.

You may have other reasons for your itchy skin. Tell us your symptoms and we will analyze your condition and give you some suggestions.


1. Skin problems are more likely to become infected (especially if your blood glucose levels are high. Keep your blood glucose levels in as healthy a range as you can. When your blood glucose levels are high you are more prone to have dry skin and you are less able to fend off harmful bacteria. This can increase your risk of infection.

2. Improve kidney function

As damaged kidney cannot filter excessive wastes including phosphorous, itchy skin is easy to occur. Therefore, you should improve your kidney function. Here I recommend you take Chinese herbs, which are natural and effective. There are many therapies that created from Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCM), and treatment should be chosen according to your own condition.
