Why does Diabetic Neuropathy hurt so much

Other Diabetes Nerve Damage

Diabetes can harm your nerves. That damage, called neuropathy, may be painful. It can happen in several ways, and they all seem to be related to blood sugar levels being too high for too long. To prevent it, work with your doctor to manage your blood sugar. You may hear your doctor mention the four types of diabetes-related neuropathy: peripheral, autonomic, proximal, and focal.

    The Common Complications of Peripheral Neuropathy

  • If you have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, you may experience these common complications.
    Injuries: Injuries can develop quickly in people who have peripheral neuropathy. Injuries to the peripheral nerves will make it difficult for you to sense changes in temperature and pressure. Therefore, this makes it easier for these individuals to hurt themselves. Burns, puncture wounds, and other injuries are common in people with this disorder.
  • Ulcers: Ulcers are also very common in people with peripheral neuropathy. These ulcers develop primarily due to pressure. People often cannot sense when they are putting too much pressure on a given area. As a result, the skin in that area starts to break down. As a result, an ulcer can form.
  • Infections: Infections are also common with this disorder. Infections develop because there is a breakdown in the skin in that area. The skin is the body’s first line of defense against infections. When the skin breaks down due to ulcers and injuries, it is easier for you to develop an infection.
  • Autonomic Issues: Depending on the location of the nerves that have been damaged, people may also develop autonomic issues. These issues develop due to changes in the way blood circulates throughout the body secondary to nerve damage. This can place a lot of stress on your nervous system. These complications can show up differently in different people. At NJ Neuropathy, our goal is to take care of the entire patient, not only the disease. We believe this allows us to provide the best possible care for our patients.
