Early action and nutritional therapies bring hope for diabetes patients with foot problems
(BPT) - The eyes may be the window to the soul, but when it comes to health, the feet are often the first place where signs of a problem appear – especially in people living with type 2 diabetes. A person with diabetes is most likely to experience symptoms in their feet earlier than any other part of the body, yet those symptoms often go unnoticed or misinterpreted.
Foot problems in people with diabetes may herald diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) – a serious complication of diabetes. The good news is that with a proactive approach to foot health, and the right therapies, it is possible for diabetes patients to stem the progress of their DPN.
While pain is the most common symptom of DPN – and the one that gets the most attention – a lack of pain, or more specifically, lack of any sensation, can be even more damaging.
