What is Diabetic Neuropathy?
Diabetic Neuropathy is a nerve disorder. It develops when your blood sugar levels are high. Then, the high blood sugar causes swelling. That swelling compresses your nerves, and you then experience numbness, tingling or burning pain in your feet.
Often, people are told there’s no cure for diabetic neuropathy. But here at Louetta Foot & Ankle, our specialists are devoted to offering pain relief. That’s why we’ve come up with a better way to treat this painful foot condition.
Spring, Texas Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment
Our Spring and Tomball, TX podiatrists learn and offer state-of-the art foot treatment techniques. Which is why we are one of the few practices in state with an effective way of detecting early neuropathy damage.
How do we do that? We have state-of-the-art, computerized sensory test. Once it detects nerve damage, we can offer an advanced surgical procedure to offer relief. This operation, called peripheral nerve decompression, relieves your pain and restores sensation to your feet.
After having this procedure, our patients report life changing results. First, they can put tingling pain and numb feet behind them. And second, they lower their foot ulcer risk, since they can now feel their wounds. (As a reminder, ulcers are open, hard-to-heal wounds. Diabetics are at risk for ulcers because they may not feel small wounds. Then, because of their reduced blood flow, the small wounds are harder to heal. Which means diabetic neuropathy is a risk factor for ulcers. And diabetic neuropathy treatment can reduce your risk!)
