Hi,
Welcome to the forum and I am glad to help you out. Diabetes does lead to neuropathy and cause problems in the hands and feet due to the same. However, generalized twitching is not known to occur due to diabetes and is likely due to some problem in the brain. It could possibly be a seizure.

Hence, I'll suggest consulting a neurologist for the same. You might need further tests like an MRI of the brain/EEG to find out the underlying cause. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

Thank you both to the doctor and the original poster...I have seen some signs of this with my husband who WAS pre-diabetic...He doesn't do this at night when he is sleeping, but I have noticed it during the day...Now he will go back to the diet...Again thank you....
