Diabetes, Neuropathy, and Next Steps for Recovery
Many people struggle with Diabetes. I would bet each one of us either knows someone who battles this condition or has it themselves. It doesn’t have to be debilitating, though, if it is treated correctly – and that’s where Neuropathy Treatment Clinic of Oklahoma can help!
Diabetes is a disease that impairs the body’s ability to process sugar or glucose, causing the need to take artificial insulin. And whether you or your loved one was born with the condition or it developed over time, one result can be diabetic neuropathy. This occurs when high blood sugar levels cause damage to nerves in your legs and feet. It can also affect nerves associated with your digestive system, heart, blood vessels, and urinary tract.
There are 4 main types of diabetic neuropathy and differing symptoms for each:
Peripheral – prevents normal sensation in the legs and arms.
– Reduced ability to feel pain or temperature changes
– Tingling or burning sensation
– Sharp pains or cramps
– Loss of balance coordination
Autonomic – regulating many different functions of the body.
– Frequent urinary tract infections / retention / incontinence
– Constipation or uncontrolled diarrhea
– Slow stomach emptying
– Difficulty swallowing
– Changes in the way your eyes adjust from light to darkness
– Increased heart rate at rest
Radiculoplexus – a motor condition affecting the lumbar region of the body.
– Severe pain in your hips, thighs, or buttocks
– Weak and shrinking thigh muscles
– Difficulty rising from a sitting position
– Abdominal swelling
Mononeuropathy – sudden sever pain in any area of the body.
– Shin or foot
– Lower back or pelvis
– Front of the thigh
– Chest or abdomen
