From Fort Bragg, North Carolina, USA:

I have had diabetes for 11 years. Recently, every time my blood sugar is high, I break out in hives. I was wondering if you had ever heard of this?


The question is which comes first, the hives or the high blood sugar. Allergic reactions could also be an intermittent stressor that raises blood sugars. I would try to hunt down what causes the hives. Just having diabetes is not a reason to get the hives. Chronic antihistamine therapy may have to be used if this is frequent.
