A new study published in Cureus reveals some devastating effects of neuropathy.
That’s the bad news, of course.
The good news is that the study revealed simple steps to drastically improve and even reverse neuropathy.
The scientists recruited 329 diabetes patients from Al-Ahsa, Saudi Arabia.
All the participants had to complete three questionnaires.
One was for participant information, including sociodemographic data, diabetic history, and other health conditions.
The second questionnaire recorded information regarding the presence and severity of diabetic neuropathy, as assessed subjectively by the participants.
The third questionnaire was a quality-of-life survey that examined participants’ level of life satisfaction, the impact of their diabetes, and their worries about diabetes.
They made the following discoveries:
1. 44.1% of the participants suffered from diabetic neuropathy.
2. The most common pain locations were their toes, fingers, soles of their feet, palms of their hands, and thighs.
3. Of those with neuropathy, 47.1% complained of pain that was sudden, unexplained, and unrelated to stress. 44.4% reported a burning pain on their skin, while 35.6% reported a loss of sensation.
4. Neuropathy was more common in divorced people than married or single people, more common in middle-aged and elderly people than in young people, and more common in less-educated people, smokers or former smokers, and people with other health conditions.
5. 73.1% of diabetics with diabetic neuropathy had low quality of life and were four times more likely to have a low quality of life than diabetics without neuropathy.
6. Participants with low quality of life complained of pain, low self-esteem, and difficulty with everyday activities, social life, and sleep.
While all of this is terribly negative, the upside was that better-educated people were less likely to have neuropathy and less likely to have a low quality of life.
Researchers have long known that people whose diabetes is under control are less likely to develop neuropathy.
It is reasonable to assume that the better-educated participants in the study were more likely than their less-educated peers were to collect information on controlling their diabetes and neuropathy. You can do the same.
Smoking and some other health-related conditions like obesity are also under your control.
