For a diabetic, many things can start occurring and often times more than others without warning. For instance in over half of diabetics at some time or another they will develop diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain due to diabetic peripheral neuropathy.

When a diabetic first learns that they have diabetes it can be very detrimental to them and their family because often times it is a disease that they will have to live with for the rest of their life. Diabetics go through so much such as edema in the feet, hands, fingers and toes, are more prone to infections because their immune system is compromised, peripheral vision impairment due to their muscles and tendons stopping from working like they should. Diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain can be very difficult to deal with because in so many it is as close to becoming blind as you can get without being declared a total blind which many if left untreated or diagnosed will end up being.

When a diabetic is diagnosed as having diabetes the body has to start working harder which causes all kinds of problems. The kidneys have to start working twice as hard to either absorb all of the insulin being produced in order to keep everything intact and smooth working order or they have to work harder in order to make insulin. The veins and arteries tend to get a strain placed on them in which they can stress and overwork causing strokes or heart attacks and many other features as well.

Diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain occurs when the diabetic or person is having trouble seeing, using their muscles and limbs and is in just a great amount of pain from overworking them. The main thing to remember with all diabetics is how to properly maintain your diabetes in order to keep this condition managed and your health taken care of.

    My husband has diabetes, and he has developed severe diabetic neuropathy. He is in almost constant pain. His feet are about the size of a small football. When ever he tries to walk, even the shortest of distances, he growls like a dog. Who can blame him though. I wish there was somebody out there who understands what I am being put through.

    Dear….
    I’m really saddened to hear about your husbands problems with his swollen feet and legs, and also the pain it is causing you to watch him go through his agony. It is a common complication with diabetes that really must be addressed urgently! I encourage you to get him to visit his practitioner, or whoever he sees to help manage his diabetes.
    I am not giving medical advice here, but visiting a podiatrist would be a good option also.
    There’s also a condition, (which is often related to diabetes) called ‘peripheral vascular disease’ which is pooling of the blood in the lower extremities of the body. This may be the case and it is generally linked to a lack of exercise and movement – and especially sitting for long periods at a time.
    Poor circulation is also a common problem – we have an article that you may wish to visit, on ways of just increasing mobility and moving just a little more every day, you can just click on this link to have a look.
    It’s also vital to maintain a good diet, drink plenty of water throughout the day and work to keep the glucose levels where they should be.
    I hope this has helped you a little. I am actually in the middle of doing a story on foot care for diabetics, focusing on boosting your circulation – so feel free to re visit our site in the next few days. I’d be interested to hear how your husband is getting on also.

    Kind regards,
    Grace 
