• RECOGNIZING THE SYMPTOMS OF DIABETIC NEUROPATHY

    on Jan 6th, 2016

Diabetic neuropathy is often experienced as highly specific diabetic foot pain near Scottsdale. Diabetic neuropathy is a kind of nerve damage that results when high blood sugar levels adversely affect the body.

While foot pain is common with diabetic neuropathy, symptoms can also affect the arms, legs, and hands. Many people report to their podiatrist complaining of pain, numbness, and tingling sensations throughout the limbs and feet. The symptoms usually appear gradually and begin in the feet and legs. Because neuropathy can make it impossible to feel pain in the limbs and feet, it can result in amputation. It is therefore essential to visit a foot and ankle specialist as soon as symptoms emerge. If caught on time, a podiatrist can stop and sometimes even completely reverse symptoms of neuropathy.
