Diabetic neuropathy is a nerve disorder caused by diabetes. The high blood sugar from diabetes affects the nerves and over time increases a person's risk for nerve damage. Keeping blood sugar levels within the target range recommended by your doctor helps prevent diabetic neuropathy.
Types of Diabetic Neuropathy:
Diabetic neuropathy can be classified as Peripheral, Autonomic, Proximal, or Focal. Each affects different parts of the body in various ways...
Peripheral neuropathy, the most common type of diabetic neuropathy, causes pain or loss of feeling in the toes, feet, legs, and hands.
Autonomic neuropathy affects the nerves that control involuntary body functions such as digestion, bowel and bladder function, sexual response, and perspiration. It can also affect the nerves that serve the heart and control blood pressure, as well as nerves in the lungs and eyes. Autonomic neuropathy can also cause hypoglycemia unawareness, a condition in which people no longer experience the warning symptoms of low blood glucose levels.
Proximal neuropathy causes pain in the thighs, hips, arms, or buttocks and leads to weakness in the legs and hands, resulting in difficulty in walking, standing, picking up objects, buttoning your clothes, etc.
Focal neuropathy results in the sudden weakness of one nerve or a group of nerves, causing muscle weakness or pain. Any nerve in the body can be affected.
How Diabetes Causes Damage to the Nervous System?
There are several factors that are likely to contribute to nerve damage through diabetes...
- High blood glucose, a condition associated with diabetes, causes chemical changes in nerves. These changes impair the nerves' ability to transmit signals.
- High glucose levels affect many metabolic pathways in the nerves, leading to an accumulation of a sugar called sorbitol and depletion of a substance called myoinositol. These changes are the mechanism that causes nerve damage. Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels. In a person with diabetes, low levels of nitric oxide may lead to constriction of blood vessels supplying the nerve, contributing to nerve damage.
- Presence of mechanical injury like carpal tunnel syndrome in a diabetic patient worsens its symptoms and prognosis
- inherited traits increase susceptibility to nerve disease
- lifestyle factors, such as smoking or alcohol use
- Numbness, burning sensations, tingling, or pain in the toes, feet, legs, hands, arms, and fingers
- Either hypersensitivity to touch or insensitivity, even to hot and cold temperatures
- Weakness in muscles and loss of reflexes
- indigestion, nausea, or vomiting
- diarrhea or constipation
- dizziness or faintness due to a drop in blood pressure after standing or sitting up
- problems with urination
- Changes in gait and balance
- Injuries that are taking longer to heal and are more prone to infections
Prevent Diabetic Nerve Damage:
Keeping your blood sugar levels in your target range, set with your doctor, may help prevent nerve damage from ever developing. The best way to do this is by checking your blood sugar and adjusting your treatment. It is also important to get to and stay at a healthy weight by exercising and eating healthy foods.
If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.
Blood sugar refers to the glucose present in our blood. This glucose is formed from the food we eat. It is carried through our bloodstream to different parts of the body mainly to provide energy. Measuring blood glucose is an essential measure of our health.
Hypoglycemia refers to low blood sugar. This is a condition when blood sugar concentrations fall below normal. Without enough glucose, our body will not be able to perform its normal functions. It can be a concern for people with diabetes taking certain blood sugar-lowering medications, but it can also affect people who don?t have diabetes.
An episode of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) comes on very suddenly and you must be aware of how to tackle it effectively.
Causes of Hypoglycemia
Hypoglycemia is usually seen as a side effect of Diabetes treatment. Some common causes of Hypoglycemia include:
Overmedication with insulin or Anti diabetic pills
Drinking too much of alcohol
Missed meals. Hypoglycemia may occur in people with cancer who are on chemotherapy, which often causes loss of appetite
Genetic defects in the regulation of Insulin release
Liver failure ? ability of liver to generate new glucose gets impaired
Pituitary and adrenal gland disorders affect the production of glucose
Symptoms of Hypoglycemia
Hypoglycemia means that there is not enough glucose reaching our brain. With drop in blood sugar our brain gets impacted immediately and we start feeling weak and fatigued. There is also a blurred/ impaired vision. Sometimes you tend to feel extremely hungry as well.
Other symptoms may also include-
Rapid or irregular heartbeat
Paleness, cold/clammy skin
What to do when you feel hypoglycemic ?
If your blood glucose is less than 70 mg/dL, immediate action must be taken to increase the blood sugar level. In such a condition the healthiest thing to do is get your glucose levels up, immediately.
Get some carbohydrates into your body immediately ? snack on something sweet, maybe glucose tablets
Drinking fruit juices or simple plain water with added sugar also helps.
Check the levels again after 15 minutes and eat some other carb rich snack in case it is still low. Once you?re above 70, follow up with a protein snack to help stabilize your blood sugar.
Untreated mild to moderate hypoglycemia can lead to severe hypoglycemia and unconsciousness. Such a situation requires the intervention of a special and cannot be self treated.
How to prevent hypoglycemia?
Regularly checking your blood sugar level can help you keep it in your target range
Keeping quick fix foods around you whether in office or in the dashboard of your car is a good practice.
People with Hypoglycemia must check their blood glucose level frequently especially during long journey trips. If the person is driving, there could be trouble concentrating or seeing clearly.
Be aware of what causes the sugar levels to drop, when is it that it usually drops ? maintaining a record of these things will better prepare you to handle situations.
It?s critical to eat small snacks every 2-3 three hours. This helps prevent your blood glucose from falling too low.
Maintain a healthy body weight by consuming a healthy diet and engaging in adequate exercise.
