Diabetic Neuropathy-Treatment and Care
Diabetic neuropathy (DN) is caused by high blood sugar levels sustained over a long period of time. Other factors can lead to nerve damage due to lifestyle factors, such as alcohol or smoking use, damage to the blood vessels, such as damage done by high cholesterol levels, and mechanical injury, such as injuries caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. Low levels of vitamin B12 can also lead to Diabetic neuropathy. Depending on the affected nerves, the diabetic neuropathy symptoms can be include from pain and numbness in the legs and feet to problems with the digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels and heart. In some people it may show mild symptoms but for some people it may be very painful and serious complications.
There is no cure for diabetic neuropathy (DN), but treatment can slow the progression of the condition. Treatment can also help to manage symptoms, such as pain and indigestion.
