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?

~ 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.

A Surgical Cure for
Diabetes?

Doctors Are Cutting Away
Part of the Small Intestine
To Regulate Blood Sugar
Levels.

The ABC reports a new,
experimental surgery could
make type 2 diabetes
disappear in some patients.
While doctors have refrained
from calling it a cure, some
believe a duodenal jejunal
bypass may be the first step
in finding a surgical solution
to the country's diabetic
epidemic.

This new surgical procedure
to control
diabetes is a new
direction in the treatment of
type 2 diabetes,

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.

Type 2 diabetes On
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.
