Diabetes and diabetic neuropathy are serious conditions that affect millions of Americans every day. According to the CDC, over 34 million Americans have diabetes, and another 88 million are prediabetic. That’s over 37% of the U.S. population either at risk for diabetes or already diagnosed!
Of those 34+ million diabetes patients, up to 50% will suffer from neuropathy related to the diabetic disease process. In diabetic neuropathy, nerves are exposed to excessive blood glucose for prolonged periods, causing damage. This damage causes pain, numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation, most often in the hands and feet.
Not only is being overweight a risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes, but it also makes having diabetes more risky. The extra weight places added strain on your endocrine system, which is already working overtime trying to stabilize your glucose levels. Diabetes and obesity are also factors in cardiovascular disease, which is the leading cause of death in women.
One of the best ways to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes is to lose weight. Many studies have shown that while there is no cure for type 2 diabetes, healthy diet choices along with weight loss can stabilize blood sugar levels, reverse the damage caused by the diabetes process, and stop the need for prescription medication.
