Diabetic Neuropathy

Over time, diabetes can cause numbness, tingling, burning and other types of nerve pain in the feet and legs.  This is termed diabetic neuropathy.  It may have a gradual onset and early symptoms often go unnoticed.  Only when the symptoms begin to disrupt sleep patterns and activity does a patient realize something is wrong.

Our podiatrists can help diagnose if you have diabetic neuropathy through a variety of tests.  Treatment will depend on a close assessment of your current medications, goals of treatment, and other factors.  The best preventative thing a patient can do is to control their blood sugars diligently. 

It is important to recognize if you are dealing with signs of diabetic neuropathy because it is a leading factor as a cause of other diabetic foot complications, such as infections, ulcers, and amputations.  Therefore, your doctor may want to keep a close eye on your feet to prevent these pitfalls of diabetic neuropathy by placing you in protective shoes, having regular foot check-ups, and taking the right medications.
