Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is nerve damage that affects the nerves in your toes, feet, legs, hands, and arms. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that is caused by diabetes in some patients because diabetes can interrupt the normal body function of blood vessels depending on normal nerve function, and nerves depending on adequate blood flow. High blood sugar can injure nerve fibers throughout your body. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy symptoms include numbness / extreme sensitivity, sharp pains, loss of balance, and burning sensation that can become even worse at night. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes.
