"The nerves that get influenced by high sugars have a tendency to be the longest nerves in the body," clarifies Dr. Zonszein. These nerves go from the spine to the toes, which is the reason the feet get influenced before the arms or hands. Diabetic neuropathy additionally has a tendency to be two-sided.

While keeping up great glucose control can help counteract or postpone neuropathy, there is no cure once the nerves are harmed for a drawn out stretch of time; the pharmaceuticals that are accessible just treat side effects and moderate the movement of the illness. Be that as it may, analysts have seen some encouraging outcomes in late reviews with mice. One distributed in the July 2015 issue of the Journal of Neurophysiology recommends that fish oil (particularly omega-3 unsaturated fats) may help turn around or moderate the movement of diabetic neuropathy.


Generally speaking, Zonszein says that he has been seeing less and less neuropathy, which he credits to prior determination, better medicines, and patients working with their specialists to assume responsibility of the malady. "Individuals with diabetes are improving these days. We're seeing intricacies less frequently and substantially later in the ailment," he says. "That is an essential message to patients."
