Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication from diabetes, in which nerves are compromised as a result of high blood sugar levels. This condition may present itself in several different ways. Some of the symptoms may include tingling, burning and loss of sensation in your hands or feet. This is the result of nerve damage, also called peripheral neuropathy. Lowering blood glucose levels can help prevent and possibly reverse some of the effects of diabetic neuropathy. Physical therapy is an effective treatment that can help restore balance and sensation that has been lost.
