I am 18 a over the past year I have noticed that whenever I eat starchy foods my body starts to itch all over and breaks out in weps. My mother and grandmother both had diabetes and my mother does experience the same symptoms as I do. I just am not sure if I have it because it happens with starchy foods and not sweets. If anyone has experienced this or has any advice please please let me know. Thank you!!!

Do you feel any other symptoms like excessive eating, excessive drinking, excessive peeing or weight loss?

Can you measure your blood glucose level when hungry?

Itching is rather a symptom of allergy than diabetes.
