Treating Nerve Damage

To properly understand neuropathy treatment you must first know a few key details about the condition. Essentially, neuropathy refers to a condition in which nerve cells are damaged. There are several types of neuropathies. The one associated with diabetes is peripheral neuropathy and it involves pain and numbness in the extremities (feet, hands, toes). Unfortunately, this condition is a common side effect of diabetes with 60% - 70% of diabetes patients experiencing it to varying degrees.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

Different types of neuropathy are associated with different potential causes. For diabetic neuropathy, the most common cause is uncontrolled, diabetes-related blood sugar for a prolonged period of time. Once the nerves are damaged they cannot be replaced. You can prevent further damage to your nerves with a combination of diet change, exercise, medications, and controlling your blood sugar levels.

Another common cause of peripheral neuropathy is related to chemotherapy drugs. Symptoms of this type of neuropathy include things like weakness, clumsiness, tingling in extremities, numbness that makes it difficult to walk in some cases, inability to grip things (loss of feeling or sensation in the hands), sharp or burning nerve pain. It can even affect fine motor skills. When chemotherapy drugs are the cause of peripheral neuropathy, it is referred to as chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN).
