Painful Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment at Pedes Orange County
Painful Diabetic Neuropathy (PDN) is a nerve disorder that causes chronic pain in the feet and legs in people with diabetes. It affects roughly half of all adults with diabetes and can significantly reduce quality of life. PDN is caused by high blood sugar levels that damage nerves over time. The symptoms of PDN include tingling, burning, and shooting pains, as well as numbness and weakness in the affected area. Traditional treatment options for PDN include medications such as pain relievers, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants. However, these treatments are often ineffective and can have unpleasant side effects.
