The problem of neuropathy
After living with diabetes for many years, uncontrolled blood sugar levels can damage nerves. This nerve damage causes different symptoms and the problems first appear in toes, feet and hands. Also referred to Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, the prevailing issue is a burning sensation on the skin or tingling feet or hands. In addition to discomfort, such loss of feeling in the feet can lead to balance problems and falls that result in broken bones. The pain and loss of control lead to emotional stress or even depression.
You’re not alone – more than 20 million Americans suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy. If you have burning or shooting pain, balance problems or a sensation of walking on broken glass, hope is available.

- Leg cramping
