Prevent Neuropathy Pain with Diet and Exercise

By Dr. Steven Waldman of Milwaukee Foot & Ankle Specialists of Milwaukee, WI

With Football season starting up, we all hear about and have different beliefs on what makes a great team. Some may say a great team is defined by its Quarterback. Others may argue that the winning team has the best coaches. One argument that always comes up however is the inevitable saying “The best offense is a good defense.” This saying, though it may or may not be true in Football, is crucial to medicine and staying healthy.

We have had a couple blogs before about alternative treatment methods for problems with neuropathy. However, did you know that preventative medicine can help you prevent neuropathy pain or keep it from progressing? If you are one of our diabetic patients with neuropathy, keep a watch on your diet! The level of your blood sugar can directly effect the progression of your neuropathy (as well as a variety of other manifestations of the disease). This means exercise too! Many diabetics have extraordinary success controlling their blood sugar with the combination of a good diet and consistent exercise. Even a little bit of walking every day could make a huge difference. But, this isn’t just true for diabetics. A well rounded, healthy diet followed with consistent exercise will help with many disease states, including peripheral neuropathy.

Other forms of defense in medicine, or medical prevention can even be quite simple. Doing things like checking your feet daily for any changes can help avoid a variety of severe outcomes. Especially in our patients with systemic diseases, a daily foot check will allow you to see if there is any reason to come see us. If there are any changes in your feet that you are unsure of, don’t hesitate to give us a call!
