5. Ditch the itch
Dry skin is a common, pesky side effect of diabetes, and it gets worse as we spend more time indoors in cold weather. The condition stems from high blood sugar, which reduces body fluid levels, and nerve damage, which decreases sweating. Besides staying well hydrated, try showering less. Instead of every day, try every other. Trust us, no one will notice.
Tip: If you’re moisturizing, keep the creams away from your groin, underarms and between your toes, where it can prompt fungal infections.
