Diabetic Neuropathy

What is it?

If you have neuropathy, the most commonly described feelings are sensations of numbness, tingling (“pins and needles”), and weakness in the area of the body affected. Other sensations include sharp, lightening-like pain; or a burning, throbbing or stabbing pain.

How is neuropathy diagnosed?

  • History and physical exam
  • Neurologic exam
  • Blood work and imaging tests
  • Nerve conduction study (NCS)
  • Electromyography (EMG)

How is neuropathy treated?

  • Medicines can be used to control pain
  • Physical therapy
  • Neurostimulation

What can you expect?

  • Your results will depend on what is causing your neuropathy.
  • If your neuropathy is due to a treatable condition (like diabetes), improving the condition might result in stopping the neuropathy or preventing it from getting worse.
  • If the underlying cause of the neuropathy can’t be treated, then the goal is to manage the symptoms of neuropathy and improve your quality of life.
