How serious can diabetic neuropathy be?

Add answer

Diabetic neuropathy is related to many different things such as age, duration of the disease, gender, smoking, fat distribution, blood pressure, HbA1c, and other health problems. It may be more severe in women than men because they have higher levels of HbA1c, which has been shown to be correlated with peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes mellitus presents circulating factors that cause blood vessels to weaken, leading to microvascular complications. These effects are thought to result from the accumulation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) on endothelial cells and pericytes, which are important for maintaining vascular integrity.

What is the average age someone gets diabetic neuropathy?

Add answer

Diabetes affects many parts of our bodies including the peripheral nervous system. It is believed that there is an increase in the risk of developing neuropathy in older adults due to the fact that they are more susceptible to diabetes than younger individuals. The prevalence of neuropathy increases as one ages. However, these studies were not done specifically on diabetic neuropathy.\n

Can diabetic neuropathy be cured?

Add answer

There is no cure for diabetic neuropathy. Prevention is the best way to prevent this complication. Proper diet, exercise, and medication are the most important factors for preventing diabetic neuropathy.

What are common treatments for diabetic neuropathy?

Add answer

The mainstay of management of diabetic neuropathy is adequate glycemic control. In addition, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs may improve symptoms of diabetic neuropathy by reducing inflammation and potentially decreasing oxidative stress. Mild pain typically responds well to analgesics (such as paracetamol, NSAIDs) alone. However, more severe pains often respond to opioid analgesics alone. Anticonvulsants may be useful in relieving chronic pain related to diabetic neuropathy.

What causes diabetic neuropathy?

Add answer

Trauma causes mild injuries to nerves. This could lead to diabetic neuropathy. The most common form of diabetic neuropathy is Charcot joints. Nerves terminals often become swollen with deposits of glycosaminoglycans and proteins causing a loss of nerve function. Diabetes mellitus is the leading cause of diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic neuropathy is relatively rare. Diabetes mellitus affects about 10% of the population in the United States. Diabetes-related neuropathies account for 60% of all cases of diabetic neuropathy. It is estimated that 1 in 20 individuals will develop diabetic neuropathy at some point during their lives. Approximately 5–10% of individuals with diabetes have diabetic neuropathy.

How many people get diabetic neuropathy a year in the United States?

Add answer

Approximately 1 million Americans were affected by diabetic neuropathy in 1994. Because most cases develop over an extended period, exercise and weight reduction may help prevent or slow progression of symptoms.

Unverified Answer

Who should consider clinical trials for diabetic neuropathy?

Add answer

Most patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy would benefit from clinical trial participation. Clinical trial participation is recommended among those patients with the greatest health-related quality of life impairment and no evidence of significant depression.

Unverified Answer

Have there been any new discoveries for treating diabetic neuropathy?

Add answer

The use of neuromodulatory techniques such as transcranial Direct Current Stimulation and Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation are likely to be beneficial in this condition. As the first reported case report of successful use of TENS for diabetic neuropathy, we present this case to show the potential benefits of this technique in the management of diabetic neuropathy. However, much more research is needed in this area.

Unverified Answer

Are we measuring what we think we're measuring?

Add answer

Although our study suggests that serum creatinine measurements are not routinely checked at the time of measurement of HbA(1c), it does not mean that they should be routinely measured. There is evidence that if one does measure them, this will result in better identification of patients at risk for developing diabetic nephropathy.

Unverified Answer

Are diabetic neuropathy and nephropathy associated with reduced quality of life in type 1 diabetes mellitus patients?

Add answer

In a recent study, findings demonstrates that both DSPN and DN negatively impact QoL in T1DM patients. In a recent study, findings contribute to the growing evidence emphasizing the need for peri-diagnostic assessment of patient-reported outcomes.

Unverified Answer

Is diabetes mellitus associated with peripheral neuropathy in type 2 diabetic patients?

Add answer

We found no association between DM and peripheral neuropathy but we noted a high prevalence of PN among T2DM patients. Results from a recent clinical trial suggest the need for screening for PN in all T2DM patients.

Unverified Answer

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy?

Add answer

Diabetes mellitus did not increase the risk of developing diabetic neuropathy except for the presence of hypertension in the subjects with microvascular complications. In addition, the duration of DM was significantly associated with development of diabetic neuropathy.
