Hi guys- so Im type 2 recently diagnosed. I have been having skin problems, problems with redness for the past several years.

Only it wasnt until I was diagnosed 6 months ago that my skin flushes (gets bright red) when my sugar gets above 140.

Then its redish during the day.

Ive talked to my doctors about Rosacea and theyre not sure its not my diabetes. Does anyone else with Diabetes have their face flush when their sugar is high?

Thanks!

There are times my face becomea a bit flush when I indulge, and my sugars are really high.

It's a mild warm feeling.

Have you seen a dermatologist to r/o rosacea. Anyone who is very fair or flushes easily could have it.

My face feels hot/flushed when my blood sugar is high as well.

T2, diagnosed 8/31/06.
Meds: Metformin-ER 500 mg twice daily, HCTZ 12.5 mg every other day for BP Enalapril 20 mg 1 daily (ace-inhibitor)
Diet: I eat to my meter, generally eating 75-100 carbs/day with the occasional splurge.
