WHAT’S DIABETIC NEUROPATHY

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

50% OF DIABETIC INDIVIDUALS HAVE NEUROPATHY

Persons with diabetes can develop nerve problems any time. But the longer a person has diabetes, the higher the risk. An estimated fifty percent% of individuals with diabetes have some kind of neuropathy, though not all those with neuropathy have signs and symptoms. The greatest rates of neuropathy are among individuals who have had the disease for around 25 years.

WHO’S AT RISK

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