30 Nov Neuropathy Relief Center of Miami Research Review: Effect of Modified Laser Transcutaneous Irradiation on Pain and Quality of Life in Patients with Diabetic Neuropathy
“Results: The ILIB group presented significantly lower pain levels and a better quality of life compared with the control and SILIB groups. Conclusions: This study demonstrated that ILIB therapy was effective in reducing pain and improving quality of life in patients with DN. ”
Background: Diabetic neuropathy (DN) is one of the major complications developed by individuals with diabetes mellitus. DN is responsible
for a high morbidity and mortality rate and impacts the public health and medical assistance resources. Intradermic laser irradiation on blood (ILIB) consists of the application of light beams on the radial arterial, providing anti-inflammatory and vasodilator effects, antiarrhythmic action, reduction of glucose, and stabilization of the hormonal and immunological systems.
These effects help to maintain the physiological dynamics of the body. Objective: The goal of this research was to evaluate the effects of ILIB to relieve pain and improve the quality of life in DN patients. The sample comprised 30 diabetic volunteers with DN,
randomly distributed into 3 groups: Control-conventional treatment; ILIB-100 mW, 660 ± 10 nm, 30 applications in total, divided into 3 stages of 10 applications, 30 min each, daily, with a 20-day interval between each stage; SILIB-same protocol described for ILIB, with the equipment switched off. Before and after the application of the therapeutic protocols, all volunteers were evaluated by the following instruments: Medical Outcomes Study 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36), visual analog scale, Leeds Assessment of Neuropathic Symptoms and Signs (LANSS), and PAIN DETECT scale. Collected data were statistically analyzed with a 95% confidence interval, p < 0.05. Results: The ILIB group presented significantly lower pain levels and a better quality of life compared with the control and SILIB groups. Conclusions: This study demonstrated that ILIB therapy was effective in reducing pain and improving quality of life in patients with DN.
Why are medications not really helping patients with neuropathy ?
Currently, Conventional medicine does not have a cure for people who suffer from peripheral neuropathy. Patients are prescribed powerful medications (painkillers, antidepressants, antiseizure) that do not treat the cause of the damaged peripheral
nerves causing the pain, numbness, discoloration, cramping, restless legs, and balance issues. These types of medications only cover up the pain and symptoms temporarily while the peripheral neuropathy condition continues to progressively get worse resulting in more nerve damage. The majority of patients cannot live a happy life with horrible side effects of long-term drug use that doesn’t not even address the cause of the nerve damage and disease.
The first step to recovering your health is to determine the cause of your symptoms, identify your current nerve damage severity, and design an individualized peripheral neuropathy treatment plan of action to help you beat peripheral neuropathy.
