Diabetic Neuropathy is a condition where high blood sugar injures the nerves, especially in a person’s legs and feet. Symptoms of this can include numbness, tingling, and pain which can be mild or debilitating. The problem doesn’t only affect the lower extremities it can also lead to problems with your digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels, and heart. If untreated, it can lead to escalating problems that may eventually require amputation. Dr. Bill Releford checks for symptoms of neuropathy as a part of the comprehensive foot care exam. Once it is detected, continued monitoring and treatment help to keep the problem under control. Dr. Releford may recommend his proprietary treatment that involves platelet-rich plasma. The sooner any additional issues are found, the better the recovery chances will be.
