What is diabetic neuropathy?
Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that may occur alongside diabetes as a result of high blood sugar levels. Often affecting the nerves in the feet and legs, this condition can trigger numbness, shooting pain, muscle weakness, coordination loss, tingling sensations and even digestive and cardiovascular problems.
What does diabetic neuropathy treatment involve?
There is no curative treatment for diabetic neuropathy. However, there are several ways to reduce symptoms, improve range of motion and slow the overall progression of this condition. At Tufts Medical Center Community Care, our endocrinologists collaborate with primary care physicians and other specialists as necessary to develop individualized treatment plans for each of our patients. Many patients are able to benefit from advanced blood sugar management techniques and medication to control pain and promote mobility. What’s more, our practice also features a certified American Diabetes Association self-management diabetes program that offers comprehensive resources and guidance on how to effectively manage diabetes symptoms.
