People with diabetes often experience excruciating chronic foot pain.

August 5, 2016

An astounding 26 million Americans are living with diabetes and about one in five experience diabetic nerve pain.

This severe chronic pain condition, called diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), has been reported by patients at a rate that is actually double the estimate from healthcare providers across the country, according to a new survey conducted by the American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA).

But diabetics are already reliant on medications to keep their conditions under control and do not want to add prescription pain medication to an already complex myriad of drugs they are taking to manage their disease.

More concerning, many doctors react to “I’m in pain” by writing a script for painkillers or opiates, doctors which can be prohibitively expensive, produce dangerous side effects, or become ineffective in managing the pain over time.

Pain Symptoms of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN):
  • Numbnessburning
  • Stabbing pain in the hands or feet
  • Tingling or burning
  • Extreme sensitivity to pain and temperature
  • Shooting pain
  • Loss of balance

Most troubling is the fact many sufferers don’t know to ask about drug-free ways to treat this pain with their healthcare providers. Sadly, 77% of patients says DPN interferes with their ability to complete and enjoy normal day-to-day activities.

What Causes Diabetic Neuropathy?

The cause of this pain is the result of uncontrolled sugar levels that, over time, damages the nerves, most commonly affecting the toes, feet and hands.

Successful treatment for diabetic nerve pain can be challenging, and the condition can often be drug-resistant as well.
