Aggressive Diabetes Treatment May be the Result of Nerve Pain
It is not uncommon for people with diabetes to experience nerve pain also known as diabetic neuropathy. What can happen is when a diabetic is treated aggressively to get their diabetes under control they suddenly develop nerve pain and often times it can be severe. This condition puzzles both the patient and the doctor.
Numerous tests were performed on 16 individuals who entered a study to help researchers determine why and what caused severe nerve pain when a person was treated aggressively for their diabetes.
What the research team was able to discover is that almost all of the 16 diabetics who participated in the study developed symptoms of the nerve system that in involved one or more of the following systems, the digestive system, heart, sweat glands, and the urinary track system. Some also experienced a decrease in their eyesight. The diabetics also tested lower than average on the nerve density test, which causes the nerve pain.
After 18 months of aggressive treatment to get the participants blood sugar levels under control the aggressive treatment was backed off and normal treatment was pursued the nerve pain went away.
