I have been struggling for two years going to the physio for my arms and legs. And i had too much stress, doctor says take a long rest and go to physio to make it better.  And i suffered alot due to vitamin D deficiency in 2016. Also my children had vitamin D dificiency this year in 2019. So we need more sunshine in uk i can't wait till spring and summer comes. And i haven't gone to visit my elderly mother because of my illnesses with my children to look after as well. My children do always think about their grandma and they were bonded to her since birth and she always looked forward to see my children. So i pray to God that our prayers to our family will be there for our struggles to cope with ill-health. And also i want to reverse my diabetes 2 and i am not going to give up. So changing our diets to eating proper foods that are very important.

Hi,

Rash that is usually generalised to the chest/neck area & very itchy skin. I have been attribuiting this to long term use of numerous medications.

I do have occasional odd rashes usually when my sugar level is higher,I also get rashes under the breasts so I have to keep checking that. It's worth mentioning to your diabetic nurse. I am on metformin but I had a couple of issues with it so they put me on the slow release one and I feel better on that. To help the itchtry not to let your skin get dry,put on lotion or baby oil after shower it does help
