What Is Diabetic Neuropathy?

What Is Diabetic Neuropathy?


So neuropathy basically means the
sensation of pressure, pain is all decreased. Especially at your feet, the
soles of your feet, could be your toes. So a lot of patients actually have damage
based on this neuropathy. Walking around, it’s easy to step on nails, it’s easy to
step on tacks and it’s easy to have those debris in your feet without
knowing it. A lot of times I’ve seen patients come into the clinic after
they’ve discovered blood on a sock and we have actually found debris in wounds
from, again, a patient walking around with no shoes, stepping on a needle, a tack,
blocks, broken glass, all kinds of stuff. The patient with neuropathy, we always say
to, not even if they have neuropathy, I always say to patients with diabetes,
always wear some type of footwear in your home.
