CAUSES OF DIABETIC NEUROPATHY
Neuropathy occurs when the nerves in your feet and legs don’t get enough blood flow to function properly. As a result of this poor circulation, the nerves get very sensitive and can cause a variety of symptoms like: Burning pain in the feet and legs , Tingling (Pins and needles feeling), Diminished sensation or even complete numbness, Heavy feeling in the feet when walking, Sensation of walking on a rolled up sock under the feet, and Feeling of walking on pebbles
The days of constant pain are far behind thanks to Dr. Tressler. He is very patient, and detailed on the painful areas and finds ways to improve them. I walk out if the office feeling like a new person each time. Everyone in the office is always happy to see you and are very welcoming.-Kristina I.
SYMPTOMs OF Diabetic Neuropathy
These symptoms all stem from elevated sugar levels in the blood from diabetes. Any time the sugar is higher than the recommended range, there is a chance that the sugar is damaging the lining of the blood vessels. The longer the sugar levels are elevated, the more damage occurs and blood flow begins to worsen.
If blood circulation (blood flow) is poor, that means the fine nerve endings in your toes and feet are not getting enough blood to survive. This is usually the point at which most people begin to experience symptoms. This demonstrates that the conditions leading to nerve damage are usually present long before symptoms begin.
It is so important to get your symptoms evaluated and treated as quickly as possible so the nerves don’t suffer even more extensive damage.
In order to treat neuropathy effectively, a comprehensive approach is necessary. The problem is not just in your feet, but instead, stems from the diabetic imbalance in your whole body causing the nerve damage in the more sensitive foot nerves. It is crucial to understand there is no magic pill or medication that can do this. To truly correct this problem, the internal environment which created the neuropathy imbalance in the first place must be changed.
To correct these internal imbalances and heal the nerve damage, we must remove the systemic inflammation created by elevated blood sugar levels. The Diabetic Neuropathy Reversal Program at Blue Mountain Wellness focuses on just that.
