Q
Will my diabetic neuropathy ever get better?

A

Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy include tingling, burning, and numbness, especially in the tips of the toes and the bottom of the feet.    Besides the oral prescription medications that many feel may be the end of the line, there are other methods that may help improve the symptoms.  Controlling your blood sugar will go a long way and many patients feel that they have decreased symptoms when they keep their blood sugars under 120 mg/dL.  Others may take supplements, such as Neuremedy,  a biofood available upon the recommendation of our doctors.  We also work with a compounding pharmacy, and various topical medications may also alleviate some symptoms.  A visit with one of our doctors will determine which treatment is right for you, and help you control some of the burning and tingling you may feel.
