Can Neuropathy Be Cured?
Neuropathy is a problem that many people with diabetes can’t avoid. By some estimates, nearly everyone with diabetes will eventually encounter this nerve disease to a greater or lesser extent, depending on their BG control. Symptoms range from tingling in the fingers and toes, to shooting pains, to hypersensitivity, to total lack of sensation. At its extremes, neuropathy can even lead to gangrene and amputation of toes or feet. While there are a limited number of drugs and other treatments available for managing the pain of neuropathy, there currently is no way to cure it.
However, there recently has been a rare piece of good news about this condition when it was announced that researchers at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have made progress in developing a drug to fight the physiological causes of neuropathy and reverse the effects of the condition.
