Don’t Let Diabetic Neuropathy Lead to Amputation
Foot related complications of diabetes, nerve damage called neuropathy, is common. If you have diabetes, you have about a one in four chance of developing neuropathy, and this isn’t some disease you’ll only deal with in old age. Most neuropathy patients are aged 30 to 60, although people under 30 with type 2 diabetes are also at risk.
If you are diabetic, the odds are good that you will develop neuropathy. It will manifest itself as burning, numbness or tingling in your feet or hands. It is quite irritating, and you will know it when you have it. The best way to beat it is to discover it early.
Neuropathy Treatment at The Villages Chiropractor
If you have Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes, you should be screened annually for neuropathy. If you already have tingling or numbness in your hands or feet, then see Dr. Jason Davis at the Davis Clinic of Chiropractic in The Villages, FL. Dr. Davis has the very latest high-tech procedures for eliminating the burning or numbness of neuropathy without surgery, or dangerous drugs.
Don’t take a chance on losing a limb. The sooner you treat your neuropathy, the better your prognosis. Waiting too long for treatment increases your risk of partial or full amputation.
