Diabetes Causing You Neuropathic Pain
   & Discomfort?  

        Are You at Risk of Nerve Damage  
                                         Or Skin Ulceration?

What Is Diabetes?  
Diabetes mellitus is a health condition where there is too much glucose in
the blood. Glucose is a form of sugar and the main source of fuel used by
our bodies. Glucose comes from food which contains carbohydrate, such
as vegetables, as well as cereal foods.

The hormone, insulin, produced in the pancreas, stimulates the uptake of
glucose, amino acids and fat from the blood into our body’s cells.  For
diabetics, their pancreas either cannot make insulin or the insulin that is
made is insufficient.

There are two main types of diabetes:
~
Type 1 diabetes usually affects children and young adults.
~ Type 2 diabetes, or mature onset, is the most common form of diabetes
affecting about 90% of all people with diabetes. While it usually affects
mature adults, more young people are developing type 2 diabetes.

What Are The Common Problems Associated with Diabetes?
When blood glucose levels are too high over long periods of time, damage
to cells within the body can result. Nerve and vascular damage are
common.

Can I Relieve The Symptoms of Diabetes?
There are things you can do to prevent or relieve the symptoms of
diabetes that are often associated with feet and skin. Wearing safe,
natural soothing far infrared therapy garments can assist to relieve the
symptoms of diabetes without the risk of side effects. Protective
FIR
Therapy socks
can also help in the prevention of foot ulcers associated
with diabetes.

How Can Thermomedic Therapy Garments Help My
Diabetes?
 ~ Assist to reduce neuropathic pain and symptoms
~ Enhance blood circulation in your hands and feet
~ Avoid foot odour and assist your feet to stay dry and healthy
~ Improve your quality and enjoyment of life
~ Provide vital protection against skin damage, ulcers and sores
~ Help provide compressive limb & joint support to aid gentle exercise

How Can Diabetes Hurt My Feet?
High blood glucose from diabetes causes two problems that can hurt your
feet:
~ Nerve damage. One problem is damage to nerves in your legs and
feet. With damaged nerves, you might not feel pain, heat, or cold in your
legs and feet. This lack of feeling caused by nerve damage is also called
diabetic neuropathy. Nerve damage can lead to a sore or an infection.
~  Poor blood flow. The second problem happens when not enough
blood flows to your legs and feet. Poor blood flow makes it hard for a sore
or infection to heal. This problem is called peripheral vascular disease.
Smoking when you have diabetes makes blood flow problems worse.

What Can I Do To Take Care of My Neuropathy Pain?
~ Keep your feet clean by washing them in warm water and soap.        
~ Dry well.
~ Always wear therapy socks to avoid blisters, injury and skin damage
~ Magnetic therapy. Clinical trials are showing positive benefits for             
sufferers of diabetes.

How Can Diabetes Hurt My Skin?
Diabetes can hurt your skin in two ways:
~ If your blood glucose is high, your body loses fluid. With less fluid in your
body, your skin can get dry. Dry skin can be itchy, causing you to scratch
and make it sore. Also, dry skin can crack and allow germs to enter to
cause infection. If your blood glucose is high, it feeds germs and makes
infections worse.
~ Nerve damage can decrease the amount you perspire. Perspiration
helps keep your skin soft and moist. Decreased sweating in your feet and
legs can cause dry skin.

What are Diabetic Neuropathies?
Diabetic neuropathies are a range of nerve disorders caused by diabetes.
People with diabetes can develop nerve damage throughout the body.
Some people with nerve damage have no symptoms of diabetes. Others
may have diabetes symptoms, such as chronic pain, tingling, numbness or
loss of feeling in the hands, arms, feet and legs.

Doctors suggest about 70 percent of people with diabetes type 2 have
some form of
neuropathy. The risk of developing nerve problems,
neuralgia and the feeling of burning feet increases with age and the
duration of diabetes.

What Causes Diabetic Neuropathies?
Nerve damage can be due to a combination of factors:
~
Metabolic factors, such as high blood glucose or low levels of insulin
~ Damaged blood vessels that carry oxygen and nutrients to nerves
~  Autoimmune factors that can cause inflammation in nerves
~ Injury to nerves, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
~ Inherited susceptibility to nerve disease
~ Lifestyle factors, such as smoking or alcohol

What Are The Symptoms of Diabetic Neuropathies?
First symptoms are often numbness, tingling, or pain in the feet.
Symptoms are usually minor at first. They can involve the sensory, motor,
and autonomic (or involuntary) nervous systems. For some diabetics with
focal neuropathy, the onset of pain can be sudden and severe. Symptoms
may be worse at night.

Symptoms of diabetes and nerve damage often include:
~
numbness, tingling, or pain in toes, feet, legs, hands, arms, and fingers
~ wasting of the muscles of the feet or hands
~ dizziness or faintness after standing up due to a drop in blood pressure
~ muscle weakness
~ a tingling, burning, or prickling sensation
~ loss of balance and coordination







Natural Foot Care Treatments
People with neuropathy need to take special care of their feet. The
nerves to the feet are the longest in the body and most often affected by
neuropathic pain. Loss of sensation in your feet means that sores or
injuries may not be noticed and could become ulcerated or infected.
Circulation problems can also increase your risk of foot ulcers. Blisters
and sores may appear on numb areas of the foot because pressure or
injury goes unnoticed. Wearing protective Thermomedic
Therapy Socks
reduces the risk of damage and sores to your delicate and fragile skin.

Thermomedic
diabetic socks are also highly effective to reduce
perspiration and foot odour, as well as other
symptoms of diabetes.

The natural healing power of thermal therapy can help boost blood
circulation in hands and feet to reduce the risk of nerve damage, tingling
and burning pain to help relieve diabetic foot pain.

Sadly, more than half of all lower-limb amputations in the United States
occur in people with diabetes. Many amputations caused by neuropathy
and poor circulation can be prevented with careful diabetic foot care.

Researchers are studying natural therapies in clinical trials. Treatments
that involve
magnetic therapy and far infrared therapy may be helpful in
the treatment of diabetic symptoms. Magnetic therapy may be particularly
beneficial for those people whose condition is complicated by other health
complaints, such as heart problems.

Medical researchers have found that physical activity lowers the health
risks which can lead to
type 2 diabetes. Prevention of metabolic
syndrome should start with physical activity. Even small increases in levels
of physical activity can help avoid the health risks leading to type 2
diabetes. Wearing
diabetic socks can assist improve circulation to relieve
neuropathy pain
allowing you to enjoy gentle exercise without the
burning pain!

Did You know
that as many as one in four
people with diabetes will
develop a foot ulcer?

Diabetic foot complaints
such as foot ulcers may
disability and chronic pain.

A leading cause of diabetic
foot ulcers is nerve
damage. Pressure on the
sole of the foot and
repeated rubbing against
the foot can also lead to
ulcers. Diabetics may also
suffer problems with wound
healing. FIR Therapy socks
can help prevent ulcers.

The ABC reports a new,

While doctors have refrained
from calling it a cure, some

The Increase
The Australian
Diabetes Council warns
that if new cases of
type 2 diabetes
continue at their
current rate, Australian
health will take a
serious battering.

Mapping the rates of
the chronic disease
and heart disease in
NSW, Australian
Diabetes Council found
that one Australian was
being diagnosed every
five minutes which
means 290 Australians
are discovering every
day that they have type
2 diabetes. Recent
statistics show the cost
to our community of
type 2 at the moment is
over $10.3 billion.

If diabetes continues to
grow at this rate, the
cost to the Australian
health care system by
2030, will consume the
entire federal budget of
this country.

Further, research shows
that type 2 diabetes
sufferers were about
four times more likely to
develop cardiovascular
disease than those who
do not have diabetes.
These results reflect a
number of serious
health care issues,
including poor eating
and exercise habits.

Did You Know?
The release of the
neurotrophin NT-3 in
previous studies to stimulate
the growth of spiral
ganglion neurons was
expanded to utilise the
controlled release of another
neurotrophin, BDNF, both
on its own & in conjunction
with NT-3 release.  These
studies have led to the
design of  structures that
include conducting
polymers to promote a
controlled
neuro-regenerative
environment for the support
of nerve repair in peripheral
nerve & the spinal cord
injury.
