Learn About Your Options for Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment in Richmond


Over time, some people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes may develop diabetic neuropathy. This condition results from high blood sugar over a sustained period of time, and it can be quite painful. Symptoms can range from nausea to numbness to difficulty standing or digestive issues. The most common form of diabetic neuropathy is peripheral neuropathy, which usually impacts the feet and legs, but sometimes the arms and hands as well. In addition to being quite painful, diabetic neuropathy can result in injury, infection, or even loss of a toe, foot or leg.

In order to prevent and treat diabetic neuropathy, monitoring blood glucose levels is crucial. Additional diabetic neuropathy treatment in Richmond will depend on your specific symptoms and the type of neuropathy developing. In addition to working with a doctor, many people find relief through natural healing.

Chronic Care of Richmond is committed to using FDA approved protocols to help people find relief from peripheral neuropathy.

What is Diabetic Neuropathy?

Some people living with diabetes also have nerve damage as a result of the diabetes. This condition is quite common, impacting about 50% of people with diabetes. Having high blood sugar in the long-term can damage nerves throughout the body.

Most often, diabetic neuropathy occurs in patients who have been living with diabetes for multiple years, as the condition develops slowly over time. Diabetic neuropathy can impact those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Diabetic Neuropathy?

Many people seek out diabetic neuropathy treatment because the pain of the condition can be severe. With some types of neuropathy, there is also a possibility of greater vulnerability to injuries and infections. The four primary types of diabetic neuropathy are peripheral neuropathy , autonomic neuropathy, proximal neuropathy, and focal neuropathy.

Peripheral neuropathy is the most common form of neuropathy. It usually impacts the feet and legs, and sometimes the arms and hands.

Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Numbness or tingling
  • Pain or weakness
  • Burning sensation
  • Sharp pains
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch

Autonomic neuropathy impacts the nerves in your heart, bladder, stomach, eyes and sex organs.

Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy include:

  • Digestion problems like constipation and diarrhea
  • Bladder or bowel problems
  • Loss of appetite or vomiting

Proximal neuropathy is much rarer but is sometimes seen in people over 50 years old who are living with controlled type 2 diabetes. This type of neuropathy most commonly impacts the nerves in the thighs, hips, legs, or buttocks.

Symptoms generally worsen over time but eventually clear up, and they include:

  • Sever hip, thigh, or buttock pain
  • Difficulty standing up
  • Pain in the stomach

Focal neuropathy, or mononeuropathy, involves damage to one specific nerve. This form of neuropathy can come on quite suddenly and cause substantial pain. Many times, focal neuropathies only last a few weeks or months, without lasting damage.

Symptoms can include:

  • Pain in isolated areas
  • Numbness, tingling, or pain in fingers
  • Double vision or aching behind the eyes

Each type of diabetic neuropathy can be painful and stressful, especially because there is no known “quick fix.” However, some types of diabetic neuropathy treatments can help slow the progression of the condition and ease symptoms.

Neuropathy Treatment


When you work with your doctor to prevent and manage diabetic neuropathy symptoms, the diabetic neuropathy treatment will most likely involve actively monitoring your blood glucose levels, managing your diet and staying active. Because diabetic neuropathy is most likely caused by high blood sugar levels over time, keeping these levels in a more healthy range can work to prevent further nerve damage.

Chronic Care of Richmond
Diabetic Neuropathy Treatment


Other diabetic neuropathy treatment may vary depending on the specific type and symptoms that are present. For example, with the most common type of diabetic neuropathy, peripheral neuropathy, the feet are often impacted. Therefore, treatments involve in-depth foot care including cushioned shoes, checking for cuts and blisters, keeping feet clean and dry.

For some, trying to get proper treatment for diabetic neuropathy can be frustrating. Sometimes, the conversations with a medical provider and current treatments still do not alleviate symptoms or slow the development of the condition.

In these cases, some people seek additional treatment options outside of traditional medicine that may be used as a companion treatment in addition to other treatments recommended by a doctor. Chronic Care of Richmond provides natural, holistic therapy options for diabetic neuropathy treatment. With FDA approved protocols and highly researched therapies, Chronic Care of Richmond is dedicated to helping others heal. Request a consultation today!

Had my initial appointment and met with Amber - she was great. The pricing, which of course is gone over at the very end, was too much for me. It's $1,797.00!! They do offer financing which is great but its still $300 for 6 months or $200 for 9 months.... I just couldn't swing it but with what they offer I believe this...
