Well, is acupuncture helpful for diabetic neuropathy?

Acupuncture improves the effects of a diabetes medication for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy, including:

1. reduced ability to feel pain in the feet

2. altered walking style

3. digestion problems

4. erection problems in men

5. loss of muscular strength

6. heart problems

7. injuries to the feet that go unnoticed and therefore untreated

Acupuncture treatment can prevent blood sugar, prevent neuropathy, stroke and even dementia. The healthy blood vessels and nerves are crucial for the normal function of the heart and brain function. Since patients cannot do acupuncture every day to lower their blood sugar, eating low glycemic index food and doing regular exercise can also help resensitize the insulin receptor. Keeping diabetes under control will also reduce the risk of kidney disease. Diabetes is the number one factor for kidney disease.
