If you struggle with the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy, we are here to help in Clemmons.
If you have diabetes, you may develop diabetic neuropathy, which can be a type of progressive damage to your nerves. Generally speaking, it occurs because high blood sugar, or glucose, can harm the nerve fibers in your body, particularly in your feet and your legs. Depending on the effect on your nerves, the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from pain and numbness in your limbs to issues with your blood vessels, digestive system, urinary tract, and even your heart. While some people only experience mild symptoms, for others, diabetic neuropathy can be debilitating, disabling, painful, and disheartening.
At Complete Rehab, we realize that diabetic neuropathy is a serious complication related to diabetes, but we also know that you can prevent diabetic neuropathy or slow its symptoms with certain treatment methods and living a healthy lifestyle. There are more than 35 types of neuropathy. Three of them are diabetic-type neuropathies. 80% of people who have neuropathy have one of those three.
It is rare that we are unable to treat or significantly improve patients who come to see us from Clemmons, North Carolina, and we believe in compassionate, patient-focused care. If you are interested in our approach to treating diabetic neuropathy, or other neuropathies, please make an appointment with our office today. We often do not require doctor referrals and even accept Medicare.
