There are some kidney diseases as well as GI conditions leading to itching. Obtaining appropriate blood and urine tests to evaluate the kidneys, as well as specific antibody and imaging tests to exclude primary biliary cirrhosis, can be considered.
These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
