WHAT IS DIABETIC NEUROPATHY

Individuals with diabetes can, in time, develop damage to nerves all over the body. Neuropathy results in numbness, pain, in the feet, legs, hands, and arms. Complications may also take place in other areas, including the digestive tract, heart, and sex organs.

FIFTY PERCENT OF DIABETIC INDIVIDUALS HAVE NEUROPATHY

Patients with diabetes can develop nerve issues at any moment. However the longer a person has diabetes, the greater 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 at least 25 years.

WHO’S AT RISK

Diabetic neuropathy is more frequent in individuals who have trouble controlling their blood sugar, in people with increased levels of blood fat and also blood pressure, in over weight individuals and in those people over the age of 40. The most prevalent form of neuropathy is peripheral neuropathy, also known as distal symmetric neuropathy, which affects the legs and arms.
