Treating Numbness Tingling and Burning Caused by Neuropathy
My name is David Northcutt. I'm oneof the podiatrists here at Dallas Podiatry Works. Today I want to discuss diabetic peripheralneuropathy. There are several reasons for the development of peripheral neuropathy,but diabetic peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy simply meansnerve damage that is caused from having diabetes. This is not something that develops rapidly,but is a slowly worsening and progressive condition which happens over the period ofseveral years. The loss of sensation that occurs with nerve damage from diabetes makesthe patient more prone to developing open
sores or ulcers. Patients often do not know that they havea sore or wound, due to this lack of sensation. This can lead to significant compliionsincluding amputations. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy usually occurspatients whodo not maintain their blood sugar well, however it can occuranyone with diabetes. The symptoms of neuropathy include numbness,tingling, pain, burningthe feet which can progress up to the legs, there's oftenloss of muscle tone, loss of balance, and changes to foot structure. To determine whetheryou have diabetic peripheral neuropathy, a
history and physical will be performed. Simple,in office, noninvasive testing helps to diagnose the problem. Neurologic tests sometimes areordered. Sometimes a biopsy of the peripheral nervesthe skin may also be performed.Treatment of diabetic peripheral neuropathy begins with good control of your blood sugar.There are oral mediions as well as topical mediions that may reduce your symptoms.Prevention of diabetic peripheral neuropathy includes maintaining good blood sugar levels. If you have any symptoms of numbness, burning,tinglingyour feet or legs, please give us a call at Dallas Podiatry Works. We willwork to get the correct diagnosis to help
relieve your symptoms.
Diabetic nephropathy al presentation treatment
Diabetic nephropathyis one of the most common and serious chronic compliions associated with diabetes mellitus. In this tutorial, let'sdiscuss how the mechanisms underlying diabetic nephropathy correlate with the al presentation as well as the treatment of the disease. Now fortunately the mechanisms
underlying diabetic nephropathy, directly correlate withthe al presentation. And the first alfinding of the disease is somewhat paradoxicallyan increased kidney filtration rate orglomerular filtration rate. So, diabetic nephropathy,if you break down the term into nephro and pathy literally means kidneydisease caused by diabetes.
Now typically kidney disease is marked by a decreased filtration rate, so why is it that the first al stage of diabetic nephropathy is that of an increased glomerularfiltration rate? Well recall that the earliest mechanism contributing to diabetic nephropathy is an increased pressurestate, over hereblue.
And this is due to hypertension and efferent vasoconstriction. So let's use a common garden hose to help illustrate how thisincreased pressure state will ultimately resultan increased glomerular filtration rate. So, imagine you have this garden hose and it has a small holein the middle of it.
So first you're gonna open up the spigot and increase the pressureand flow through the hose. Intuitively, this isgoing to increase the rate at which water is leakingfrom the holethe hose. Next, you partially kink off the end of the hose distal to the hole, and once again this isgonna further increase the rate at which waterleaks from the hose.
This is essentially what'soccurringthe glomerulus with the hypertension representing the opening up of the spigot and increasing the pressurebefore the glomerulus,front of the glomerulus, and the efferent vasoconstriction representing the kinking off of the hose, which causes this back pressure.
