Diabetes toes hurt, what it really means

A person who experiences diabetes toes that hurt should be aware that the pain indicates serious nerve damage; this is one of the leading causes of amputations in a diabetic. A new study shows that there has been a sharp increase in the numbers of people who are having a toe affected by high blood sugar; the lower limbs take a very severe beating from high blood sugar; it is an issue which must be taken seriously.  In this post we will look at why diabetes affected toes hurt and what you can do about it.  



Those very small blood vessels


A very recent study from University of Iowa department of orthopedics and rehabilitation revealed that there has been an increase in the number of diabetic partial toes amputations by about 25%; this is a tremendous number of people who have been affected. The need for the removal of the toe was due to the fact that a spreading gangrene could have resulted in the need to remove the foot or the whole leg.  When diabetes toes hurt it means nerve damage, the thin nerve fiber which should protect the nerve is being damaged.  This pain is usually in the toe, fingers, foot, legs and hands. This nerve damage is called Glove and Stocking because of the areas that are affected




The picture below shows a nerve damage leading not only to pain but also to discoloration, blood sugar in excess is a poison in the body. There is no other illness today which is as damaging to the kidney, liver, heart and eyes such as high blood sugar.

"Patients with diabetes have to do their best to control their blood sugar. They need to seek care from their primary care doctor, get treatment, and discuss potential surgeries [like tendon release] to help improve their feet,” said Dr Phistkul



When diabetes toes hurt: The doctor speaks of the need to get that nasty excessive blood sugar out the body


There is a European diabetes foot diet report that has been shown to save the foot from surgery and save the limb. The diabetic foot diet is used in 10 countries, including the United States, to naturally stop diabetes toes that hurt by healing the nerve fiber.  The report now includes the Type 2 diabetes reversal diet, both reports are now included together to get a normal blood sugar and cure the foot problems.
