Do You Have Numbness, Tingling, or Weakness in Your Limbs?

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you may suffer from diabetic neuropathy. Symptoms may vary in severity and presentation from person to person. The most common side effects include:

Loss of Balance
  • Pain: Many individuals experience neuropathic pain in the affected areas, often described as a burning or tingling sensation. Some patients may even experience adverse reactions to a light touch.
  • Numbness: Numbness or reduced sensation is a common symptom, which can lead to difficulty detecting injuries or changes in temperature.
  • Tingling: Individuals often report a sensation of pins and needles.
  • Loss of balance: Nerve damage can affect muscle control, leading to balance issues and an increased risk of falls.
  • Weakness: Muscle weakness, particularly in the lower limbs, can make it challenging to perform daily activities.

It’s important to note that symptoms can worsen at night, causing discomfort and difficulty sleeping. The neuropathic pain and other sensations may become more noticeable when the body is at rest, disrupting sleep patterns and further impacting the overall well-being of individuals with this condition.

What is Diabetic Neuropathy?

Diabetic neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves in the body due to long-term uncontrolled diabetes. High blood sugar levels can cause damage to the nerves, resulting in a variety of symptoms, such as chronic pain. The condition commonly affects the feet and legs but can also impact other areas of the body.

Causes of Diabetic Neuropathy

Factors such as poor dietary habits, sedentary lifestyles, and prolonged high blood sugar levels are significant contributors to nerve damage in diabetic patients and the subsequent development of painful neuropathy symptoms. By embracing a balanced diet, engaging in regular physical activity, and diligently managing blood sugar levels, individuals with diabetes can significantly reduce the likelihood of this condition and its progression. These lifestyle modifications not only help improve overall health and blood glucose levels but also play a crucial role in preserving nerve function and minimizing its impact on daily life.

Common Types of Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment

When it comes to finding an effective treatment for this type of neuropathy, there are various options available. By working closely with healthcare providers, patients can explore and discuss the most suitable approaches tailored to their specific needs. The below options are helpful in alleviating symptoms, improving nerve function, and enhancing the overall quality of life. 

  • Medications: Medications are typically prescribed to treat this condition. However, these medications can have unpleasant side effects such as water retention and hallucinations. This might not be a viable treatment option for all patients.
  • Peripheral Nerve Stimulator: This innovative method involves using a device that delivers low-level electrical impulses to the affected nerves, helping to reduce pain and improve nerve function.
  • Artery Bypass Surgery: In some cases, when arterial blockages contribute to symptoms, providers may recommend artery bypass surgery to improve blood flow and alleviate symptoms.
  • Amputation: While amputation is a last resort, it may be necessary in severe cases where conservative treatments have not been successful. However, our goal is to help our patients avoid amputation whenever possible by providing advanced treatment options.

Vascular Treatments Dedicated to Limb Salvage

Dr. Broadway’s expertise lies in the revascularization of the plantar artery and loop, which plays a vital role in helping patients avoid amputation. These advanced procedures focus on restoring proper blood flow to the affected areas, promoting the healing of damaged nerves, and improving overall limb function. To ensure the comfort and safety of the patient, these treatments are also performed under anesthesia. This helps minimize any potential discomfort or pain during the surgery, allowing Dr. Broadway and his team to focus on delivering precise and effective results. The use of anesthesia also contributes to a smoother surgical experience and facilitates a quicker recovery.

After the revascularization procedure, Dr. Broadway may recommend post-operative measures to support recovery. These measures aim to alleviate intense pain, minimize inflammation, and facilitate healing. By closely monitoring the patient’s progress and adjusting the medication regimen as needed, Dr. Broadway ensures optimal healing and long-term outcomes.

During the procedure, Dr. Broadway utilizes advanced surgical techniques to ensure precision and optimal outcomes.
