Clinical Trials for Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment
Many people who suffer from diabetes also experience the related condition of diabetic neuropathy. The different forms of neuropathy (all of which are characterized by nerve or blood vessel damage and muscle weakness and pain) are categorized based on where the damage occurs. For example, diabetic peripheral neuropathy is neuropathy in the feet, legs, hands or arms, diabetic amyotrophy is nerve damage in the lower limbs only and diabetic retinopathy results from damage to blood vessels in the retina.
As yet, diabetic neuropathy can’t be cured, but various treatment options exist to help diabetes sufferers minimize their risk of experiencing diabetic neuropathy and to help control the flare-ups when they occur.
Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment Developments
To date, treating diabetic neuropathy consists of a combination of lifestyle habits, pain management medications and prescription drugs that can help diabetes sufferers regulate their insulin levels. Ongoing research is being conducted into the combinations of factors to achieve the best possible treatment.
Along with current diabetic neuropathy treatments and techniques, new treatment options and medications are being developed and tested in clinical trials to help in pain management and control of diabetic neuropathic outbreaks. These options include alternative treatments, such as photon stimulation, as well as new medications.
