WHAT IS DIABETIC NEUROPATHY

People with diabetes can, over time, develop damage to nerves throughout the body. Neuropathy brings on numbness, pain, in the feet, legs, hands, and arms. Issues may also occur in other areas, which may include the digestive tract, heart, and sex organs.

50% OF DIABETIC PATIENTS HAVE NEUROPATHY

Patients with diabetes can develop nerve problems at any time. But the longer a person has diabetes, the higher the risk. An estimated half% of individuals with diabetes have some form of neuropathy, though not all those with neuropathy have signs and symptoms. The highest rates of neuropathy are among people who have had the disease for a minimum of 25 years.

WHO’S AT RISK

Diabetic neuropathy is more frequent in people who have problems controlling their blood sugar, in individuals with high levels of blood fat as well as blood pressure, in over weight individuals and in those individuals over the age of forty. The most prevalent type of neuropathy is peripheral neuropathy, also called distal symmetric neuropathy, which impacts the legs and arms.
