Diabetic neuropathy affects people who suffer from diabetes type 2, which is the type of diabetes that requires patients to take insulin. Wonder why? The diabetes is a disease that if it is not treated properly can cause a serious damage to the nerves of the body.

Poor control of the blood sugar level is the main cause of neuropathy because if the disease is detected on time it will properly be treated which will then reduce the risk of developing neuropathy. Most of the people who suffer from diabetes have extra weight which brings other diseases with it such as high blood pressure. People who smoke or drink alcohol have bigger chance of developing neuropathy.

The difference between them is that the acute occurs suddenly without any symptoms and most of the times patients end up surprised because before that they thought they were perfectly healthy. The sensory neuropathy occurs slowly and it take a lot of time to develop. It happens to patients who suffer from diabetes and did not discover it on time.

What do doctors recommend in this case? It is very important to keep the feet always clean and to only wear comfortable socks made of cotton. High heels should completely be taken off the list and only wear comfortable shoes that do not make the feet sweat. Patients must also be treated with analgesics in order to prevent the pain. When the patient loses the sensation, the pain is inevitable because the muscle will weaken. Taking analgesics on time will stop the pain and the patient will feel better.
