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.
