Diabetes can get on your nerves -- literally. If you suffer from neuropathy, or nerve damage, like approximately 60-70% of people with diabetes do, there are several forms of treatment you can turn to. And with today's treatments, neuropathy can be managed so you can get on with life and out from under the thumb of it.
In many cases, neuropathy can improve. And having neuropathy does not necessarily mean you're on the road to amputation. So what can you do to treat it? Consistent diabetes management is ideal. While no medical treatment exists as of now that can cure neuropathy, it can be treated, improved, and perhaps even reversed.
