Diabetes And Your Nerves

Diabetes can affect the nerves throughout the body, a condition known as diabetic neuropathy. High blood glucose levels can damage the tiny blood vessels that supply nerves, leading to nerve damage or neuropathy. This can cause symptoms such as numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in the affected areas, most commonly the feet and legs. 


Diabetes can have a significant impact on the nerves throughout the body, leading to a condition called diabetic neuropathy. Managing diabetes and taking preventive measures are crucial in reducing the risk of diabetic neuropathy and its associated complications. Regular communication with your healthcare team is important to monitor your nerve health and make necessary adjustments to your diabetes management plan.
