Type 2 Diabetic Neuropathy: A Better Understanding

Season 28, Episode 4 of 6

Neuropathy pain was once thought to be just an expected symptom of Type 2 Diabetes-a direct result of poorly controlled blood glucose. However, it is now known that there isn't just one type of neuropathy, there are many. They are characterized by constant and sometime debilitating pain, numbness, tingling, burning and weakness, and this discomfort can make life almost unbearable. However, with new research efforts, treatment breakthroughs and patient education, there is now a greater understanding of the condition. There are also effective treatments that are allowing people with Type 2 Diabetes to once again enjoy their lives.
