06 Mar Diabetic Neuropathy Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment
Diabetic neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves of people with diabetes. It is a common complication of diabetes that can cause a variety of symptoms, including numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet. In this blog, we will discuss the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for diabetic neuropathy.
Causes of Diabetic Neuropathy
Diabetic neuropathy is caused by prolonged high blood sugar levels, which can damage the nerves over time. The exact mechanism by which high blood sugar damages nerves is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve a combination of factors, including inflammation, oxidative stress, and altered metabolism.
Other factors that can increase the risk of developing diabetic neuropathy include:
- Long duration of diabetes
- Poor blood glucose control
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Autoimmune diseases
Symptoms of Diabetic Neuropathy
The symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can vary depending on the type and location of the affected nerves. The most common symptoms include:
Numbness or tingling in the hands, feet, or legs.
Burning or shooting pain.
Muscle weakness or loss of balance.
Loss of sensation in the feet or legs.
Changes in skin color or texture.
Digestive problems, such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea.
The symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can be mild or severe, and they may worsen over time if the underlying cause is not addressed.
Treatment for Diabetic 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.
Unfortunately these medications do not rehabilitate the damaged blood vessels or damaged peripheral nerves that are causing the neuropathy symptoms (Nerve Cell Death).
Dr. Alfonso‘s Neuropathy Treatment Protocol is a highly successful drug-free, non surgical, safe, and effective treatment that has successfully helped many patients who suffer from Diabetic Neuropathy.

Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes that can cause a range of symptoms, from mild tingling to severe pain and loss of sensation. It is important for people with diabetes to manage their blood sugar levels and other risk factors to prevent or slow the progression of diabetic neuropathy.
