Type 2 diabetes: Feeling this sensation in your armpits could be a warning sign 1

Type 2 diabetes means a person’s pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. Unchecked blood sugar levels can pose health risks such as heart disease and strokes. Type 2 diabetes may trigger a variety of symptoms including heart disease, kidney disease and nerve damage. Noticing an itching feeling in your armpits could mean you are at risk.

Excess sugar in the blood and urine provides food for yeast which can lead to infection.

Yeast infections tend to occur on warm, moist areas of the skin, such as the armpits.

The affected area usually becomes extremely itchy and this can also occur on the mouth or genital areas.

The itchiness may also be accompanied by burning, redness and soreness.

Why does a person experience itching with type 2 diabetes?

There are several reasons why a person with diabetes might experience more frequent itching that others.

Sometimes, itching can result from damaged fibres in the outer layers of the skin.

Often, the cause of diabetes-related itching is diabetic polyneuropathy or peripheral neuropathy.

These are complications of diabetes that develop when high blood glucose levels cause damage to nerve fibres.
