What is diabetic neuropathy?
Diabetic neuropathy is a result of nerve damage from diabetes. High blood sugar related to diabetes can affect nerves throughout the body, triggering symptoms that can range from gradually worsening foot pain to digestive problems, increased sweating, and loss of coordination. Diabetic neuropathy can be divided into four main types: peripheral neuropathy (the most common), autonomic neuropathy, radiculoplexus neuropathy, and mononeuropathy.
How is diabetic neuropathy treated?
Each patient’s ideal course of diabetic neuropathy treatment will vary according to what type of neuropathy is present along with the severity of symptoms. Because of the wide range of symptoms that can occur, a multispecialty treatment approach can help provide patients with the best quality of life.
At Tufts Medical Center Community Care, our expansive physician network includes endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, gynecologists, and many other specialists who work together to help diabetic neuropathy patients effectively manage their symptoms and help slow the progression of the disease. Our medical group also features a certified American Diabetes Association self-management diabetes program, which provides patients with valuable resources and expert guidance on how to control diabetes symptoms.
