What is the number #1 cause of peripheral neuropathy?
If you have diabetes, you are at risk of developing the debilitating condition. Approximately 60% of people who have diabetes will develop some form of peripheral neuropathy.
So, if you have diabetes, you have a strong chance of developing peripheral neuropathy.
Why is that the case?
Diabetic neuropathy has several factors that contribute to the disorder.
For instance, diabetics suffer from high levels of blood glucose that they have to fight to control. These high glucose levels cause chemical changes in their nerves, which impairs the nerve’s ability to transmit signals.
What we are looking for with blood sugar levels is how thick your blood is.
Normal blood sugar levels will give your blood the consistency of apple juice. But when your blood sugar levels are elevated, the blood becomes more like thick maple syrup.
If blood sugar levels are left out of control or higher than normal, your body struggles to push blood to your feet and hands.
These high glucose levels also have the potential to damage the blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients to their nerves.
It’s a ticking time-bomb.
Once the nerves are damaged, signals either stop being sent through the body, or the incorrect signals are sent.
It’s as if you brain is speaking one language and the nerves are speaking another.
Once your nerves are damaged more than 60%, the symptoms start to set in.
- And many more
By the time your start feeling these symptoms, the damage has already started… and it only gets worse.
But there’s hope.
Our clinic has successfully treated thousands of cases of diabetic neuropathy. We’ve seen wheelchair ridden patients walk again. We’ve seen canes thrown to the wayside. We’ve seen patients get off the dangerous drug regimens. Best of all, we’ve seen patients get out of pain and get their live’s back.
