Neuropathy is a medical term used to indicate damage or injury to the nerves in the body. Individuals suffering from diabetes most commonly suffer from neuropathy due to the irregular range of blood sugar. In cases of uncontrolled diabetes where the sugar in the blood is critically high, the nerves that are pass through the blood vessels can become damaged. Managing diabetes is immensely essential to treat neuropathy, also known as diabetic neuropathy. With proper treatment, the affected individual can lead a regular life.

Diabetic neuropathy can cause additional complications if the blood glucose levels are not within a normal range. It is essential to continue taking any prescribed diabetes medicines to keep the blood sugar levels regulated. Individuals with severe diabetes may be advised to take insulin injections.
Daily exercise is also one of the most recommended ways to manage blood sugar levels in the body. By being active, many issues including neuropathy complications can be prevented. Exercising for a minimum of 30 minutes can be sufficient to maintain the condition under control. Together with the appropriate exercise routine recommended by a specialist, following a diabetic diet is also important.

With diabetes, the nerves located in the feet are more susceptible to damage. It is also extremely important for a person affected by diabetic neuropathy to take proper care of their feet by applying moisturizing lotions on a daily basis.

Infrared Laser Light Therapy for Neuropathy

The use of infrared laser light therapy can also be used to treat diabetic neuropathy and its symptoms. People treated with Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) have shown progressive improvement in nerve motor function, according to a recent study conducted by the Harvard Medical School. Using infrared laser light therapy to treat neuropathy is beneficial because it can increase the blood flow to damaged or injured nerves, decrease pain and muscle spasms, and stimulate proper nerve transmissions, among other benefits.

Certain supplements can also prove beneficial for treating diabetic neuropathy and its associated symptoms. Alpha-Lipoic acid, a powerful antioxidant, found to be safe to treat this condition, is an effective remedy for relieving pain. Benfoatiamine and vitamin B12 supplements have various health benefits and have also been prescribed to treat neuropathy. 

Diabetes that is not properly controlled can cause many health complications like neuropathy. Following a healthy lifestyle can play a crucial role in managing diabetes and helping prevent or treat diabetic neuropathy.
