In addition, this is also related to nerve damage in diabetic patients. Diabetes can cause varying degrees of atrophy of nerve fibers, degeneration and myelin sheath swelling, lamellar separation, and demyelination, which can lead to abnormalities in nerve function and nerve fibers to nerves. The release of transmitters is disturbed, such as unresponsiveness, release of anomalous transmitters, uncontrolled release of transmitters, and blockage of transmitters, and triggers abnormal skin reactions such as dry skin, itching, and rashes.
