neuropathyNeuropathy is a condition in which the nerves in the body become damaged.  This damage can occur due to a number of different causes, including physical injury, diseases, cancers, infections, diabetes, toxic substances, and disorders. Nerves from any part of the body, including the feet, can be damaged. When neuropathy affects the feet or other parts of the limbs, it is called peripheral neuropathy.

The symptoms of neuropathy vary greatly. Minor symptoms can include numbness, sensation loss, prickling, and tingling. More painful symptoms include throbbing, burning, freezing, and sharp pains. The most severe symptoms are muscle weakness, paralysis, problems with coordination, and falling.

Treatment depends upon the specific cause of neuropathy. If the neuropathy was caused by vitamin deficiency, diabetes, infection, or toxic substances, treating the condition can lead to the nerve healing and sensation returning to the area. If the nerve has died, however, sensation may never return to the area. Pain medication may be prescribed for less serious symptoms. Certain topical creams may work to bring back sensation. Electrical nerve stimulation may be used for a period of time to stimulate nerves, and physical therapy can strengthen muscles and improve movement. Surgery may be necessary if pressure on the nerve is causing the neuropathy.

What is Diabetic Neuropathy?
Diabetic neuropathy occurs when the peripheral nerves are damaged due to diabetes. This damage disrupts the proper transmission of signals from the skin to the brain, resulting in exaggerated pain signals. The feet are most commonly affected, with patients describing the pain as "shooting" or "stabbing."

The Limitations of Traditional Treatments:
Traditional treatments for diabetic neuropathy often involve medications like anti-depressants or anti-seizure drugs. While these medications may provide temporary relief, they come with crippling side effects and often require increasing dosages to maintain effectiveness. Furthermore, they only mask the symptoms and do not address the underlying neuropathy.
