4 Simple Ways To Manage Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN)

If you?re one of the 26 million Americans living with diabetes, then you?re probably familiar with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), which is nerve damage that?s caused by chronic high blood sugar. DPN tends to be the most common complication of diabetes. Some of its symptoms include a tingling or burning sensation, difficulty walking, and numbness, especially in your feet and toes. If left untreated, DPN can eventually lead to amputation.
While DPN seems to be a growing problem within the African-American community, here are four ways to keep your DPN under control.

1. Don?t smoke.
Ever notice how ?don?t smoke? is always somewhere on these types of lists? Well, there?s a good reason for it. When you smoke, your arteries narrow and harden, reducing the amount of blood flow to your legs and feet, which makes it more difficult for wounds to heal.
2. Keep your blood sugar levels in check.
If you?re a diabetic, then you already know how important it is to monitor your blood sugar levels. When you have DPN, inconsistent blood sugar levels put you at risk for nerve damage, which can ultimately lead to amputation.
3. Take good care of your feet.
When you have DPN, it?s a definite must that you thoroughly wash and dry your feet on a daily basis. Also, always make sure that your shoes are well-fitted and that your socks are clean and dry. Be sure to trim your toenails straight across ? or have them trimmed by a professional. Lastly, stay away from any antiseptic products and sharp tools, including nail files, as they may cause injury and further damage
4. Communicate with your doctor.
Inspect your feet regularly. If you notice anything unusual, such as a foot injury that?s taking longer to heal than normal, inform your doctor right away! ASK PRIVATLEY

Are there any long-term effects associated with taking ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) medications? If so, what are they and what medications are implicated? What exactly is a spine block injection? Will it work long-term for low back pain due to disc problems? What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and what is the best method of treatment? Can iodine help this condition?

Use of stimulant decreases the symptoms to a much good effect and if we don't give stimulant medication there will be more of conduct disorder and progress in disease and for side effects we have to monitor the person and advice them accordingly and spine block injection is effective for six months.

Mr. lybrate-user, In the winter months skin becomes dry and there may be increased itching. There may not be any specific problem like infection or allergy. You may consider using moisturising creams or oils or white petroleum jelly applications, to maintain good deal of moisture in the skin. That should help. Fasting glucose should ideally be around 100 mg, for good control. PP should be 1j0 to 180 mg/100 ml. Thanks.

Mr. Lybrate-user, lemon water is fine, can be taken by a person with diabetes. Adding sugar free powder is also fine. But what is worrying is her blood glucose level of 300 mg, which is definitely very high. When diabetes is in control fbs should be closer to 100 mg, ppbs- 170 to 180 mg & hba1c% <7. So please see that her glucose levels are brought to necessary ones. Thanks.

I am 37 year old. Had a history of gestational diabetes 7 years back when I was pregnant. No diabetes please after that. Just recently found out that fast level of sugar was 126 please and please was under normal range. Diet control and walk has brought my fasting level to 114. I want to ask if I plan for second child. I might put on weight. Will I get diabetes again. Can I prevent it ?

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
Yes you might get diabetes during 2nd pregnancy again. Continue the diet and exercise and have frequent sugar check ups during your pregnancy. It is not a contraindication for pregnancy. But note that the diagnosis of diabetes during pregnancy is slightly different. Even after delivery, you should continue checking every year even if sugars are normal. You are likely to develop diabetes on a permanent basis whether you have a 2nd pregnancy or not. The appearance of diabetes has nothing to do with gaining weight during pregnancy. It is a hormonal effect.

CONTROLLING BLOOD SUGAR Diabetes affects all organs in the body – Eyes, kidneys, nerves, reproductive system all are affected, In fact, from toe to hair. For diabetic control, patient should be under doctor's supervision. It is not as easy task to control blood sugar in the desired normal range. Whatever we eat is metabolised to sugar in the body to provide energy for our daily activities. For the absolute control, one has to monitor his / her blood sugar at regular intervals (Self-Monitoring of Blood glucose – SMBG). Though difficult, this can be done by a glucometer and keep a record. Get an idea of Fasting sugar (FBS) and 2 hours after food (PPBS), & HbA1C (inform) and check before dinner and after every major food. The basic idea is to reduce the food intake to 1/3 of what you take now. The dictum of sugar control is diet, exercise, diet + medicine and at later stage medicine+ Insulin will be needed. There are different diet plans of varying calories for each person depending on his activity & lifestyle.

Dear sir I want to know how to decrease our body pressure during high blood pressure and sugar.

Dear sir I want to know how to decrease our body pressure during high blood pressure and sugar.
Hye, Thanks for the query. For a diabetic with hypertension it is best advised to have a diet planned as per the sugar levels, lifestyle and history. Though you can follow some guidelines - The sugar levels will fluctuate depending on what you ate or did not eat, stress levels and activity levels. You have to try and manage a balanced carb intake. Have small frequent meals. Do not fast for long hours. You have to eat 3 main and 3 mid meals. Your diet must include whole grains, seasonal fruits, vegetables, small amounts of nuts and dairy and pulses or dals or lean meats like chicken or fish and egg. Starchy vegetables need to be planned into the diet. Avoid excess salt in foods. Avoid packeted, processed foods. Avoid a very heavy meal at one time. Avoid fruit juices, aerated drinks or sugarcane juice, honey, jaggery or sugar. Avoid junk foods. Avoid foods that say fat free or sugar free. They are not as healthy as they are made out to be. Exercise and stay active. Avoid exercise if sugar levels are above 250mg/dl. Do not attempt to try out too many remedies as you could go into hypoglycaemia. Sleep well.            It's all a matter of discipline.

I can understand with your issue, that you travel a lot and you mostly have outside food, that's the main culprit for your whole issue. Medicine is for those who cannot control their diet, but you wish and are willing I suggest you to like eat plenty of salads like carrot, beetroot and raddish. These will improve your digestive enzymes and you should feel better.
