Neuropathy & Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment
Neuropathy, or nerve damage, can be a painful and frustrating condition. It is usually characterized by pain, numbness, tingling in the feet or hands, and inability to decipher temperature.
Nerve damage is most commonly associated with diabetes, high cholesterol, circulatory problems, thyroid dysfunction and even nutritional deficiencies. About 60 percent of diabetic patients will develop neuropathy in their hands and feet and will need diabetic neuropathy treatment.
Neuropathy affects small nerve fibers in the sensory nerves and begins with a gradual onset of numbness and tingling in your feet, and sometimes hands, which may also spread upward into your legs. These nerve fibers are near the skin's surface which is why the symptoms deal with sensation.
Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment
Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment for nerve damage has generally consisted of managing the symptoms with pain medications, anti-depressants, and neuro-modulating medicines. A new group of vitamin prescription medicines has been developed, however, that contain the naturally occurring forms of folate, and vitamins B6 and B12. These allow for nerve regeneration and the development of new blood vessels. The tingling and burning sensations are decreased, and patients are experiencing and improvement in the skin texture, and even sleep patterns. Needless to say, Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment is a very promising new treatment!
