Neuropathy is simply a medical term for pain. Specifically, it means nerve pain caused by the reduction in circulation that occurs in the diabetic condition. Many diabetics experience some level of nerve damage that is caused by their diabetes.

This condition causes multiple symptoms, but the most common include pain and, or, weakness felt in the legs and feet, or in the arms and hands. The extremities are the most susceptible, at least in the beginning. More serious cases may involve the organs that drive the body. It can occur in the heart, the digestive system, and in the sexual organs.

The longer one has diabetes, the more likely he or she is to experience neuropathy as it does develop over time. With that said, however, keep in mind that nerve pain can affect a diabetic at any stage of the disease. It tends to occur most often in those who have been diagnosed diabetics for 25 years or more. It occurs in those who are having difficulty controlling their blood glucose levels. This is a good argument for keeping up with proper testing with your blood glucose monitor. Be sure that you are using the correct strips and that they are unopened and still within their expiration time. An accurate reading helps you and your doctor to better assess what you need to help control it. Those with high blood pressure, more than 40 years of age, and the overweight are also quite likely to develop neuropathic pain.

  • .Other factors that may contribute to diabetic neuropathy include smoking, alcohol consumption, injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, inflammation due to reduced autoimmune factors, and low levels of insulin coupled with high levels of fat in the blood.

Diabetes can damage the covering over the nerves called myelin. The nerves in this case can cease to send signals to the brain or can send the wrong signals at the wrong time. They can even send the signals, but more slowly than normal. It is also caused by the damage done to the nerves due to reduced oxygenated blood flow to the blood vessels that feed the nerves. Nerves need the oxygen that the blood brings them. With damaged circulatory systems, the nerves cannot receive their proper nutrients to continue to operate normally.

Other factors that may contribute to diabetic neuropathy include smoking, alcohol consumption, injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, inflammation due to reduced autoimmune factors, and low levels of insulin coupled with high levels of fat in the blood. If you are experiencing unexplained pain in any of these areas, discuss it with your health care provider.
