Diabetes is an incredibly common condition that is occasionally accompanied by pain and other symptoms. At The Pain Management Center, we offer treatment for diabetes pain that doesn’t involve surgery or addictive pain medications. We offer these treatments to the residents of Hamilton, Turnersville and Linwood, NJ.
What is Diabetes?
Diabetes is a group of diseases that occur when too much sugar is in the blood, which is also referred to as high blood glucose. There are four main types of diabetes:
- Type 2 Diabetes (this is the most common type of diabetes and usually diagnosed in overweight patients)
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Gestational Diabetes (evident in some pregnant women)
Diabetes can cause pain and other symptoms, including frequent urination, constant hunger or thirst, and fatigue. Pain and other uncomfortable symptoms typically occur in the hands, legs, and feet.
How is Diabetes Pain Treated?
Most diabetes symptoms can be managed with lifestyle strategies. Regardless of the type of diabetes you have, a healthy weight, exercising, taking medications as prescribed by your doctor, and eating the right foods will help to maintain proper and healthy blood glucose levels. For diabetes pain, however, you may choose to pursue treatment. At The Pain Management Center, we typically recommend medications or spinal cord stimulation for diabetes pain. However, the recommended treatment will vary by patient depending on your specific symptoms.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Diabetes Pain Treatment?
The results from your diabetes pain treatment will depend on the treatment method used as well as the extent of your symptoms. Some of our treatments may be able to provide long-lasting relief, while others may need to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain your results. During your initial visit, we will discuss your condition and your treatment goals in order to define the results that you can expect from your diabetes pain treatment.
