Two common conditions that affect the feet are Diabetes and Neuropathy. One of the most important things a diabetic should do is have their feet checked every 6 months. Common signs of Neuropathy are burning, tingling and/or numbness of the feet. Some diabetics also develop neuropathy which can lead to many problems with the feet including ulcers, etc. because they lose normal to any feeling in their feet. These conditions require daily awareness and regular check ups with your podiatrist. Appropriate footwear and medication are helpful with controlling any issues with these conditions
What is peripheral neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy, a result of nerve damage, often causes numbness and pain in your hands and feet. People typically describe the pain of peripheral neuropathy as tingling or burning, while they may compare the loss of sensation to the feeling of wearing a thin stocking or glove.
Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage caused by diabetes. High blood sugar can reduce blood flow and injure nerve fibers throughout the body, but most often the damage occurs in your legs and feet. Diabetic neuropathy with the loss of feeling in your feet is one of the most frequent causes of foot ulcerations which could lead to amputation.
If this sounds like you or something you are experiencing ask us about NeuRemedy. NeuRemedy is a safe, relatively inexpensive product, which contains three substances, each of which plays a critical role in maintaining a properly functioning nervous system. Alpha-lipoic Acid is needed by the body for the production of energy from glucose. Vitamin B12 has numerous functions within the body, amongst them, it helps form the sheath that surrounds nerves, and it removes a destructive substance called homocysteine from the blood. Acetyl L-carnitine is an amino acid, which is used within the body during the production of energy, to maintain normal nerve function, and to stimulate the production of other essential substances.
