Hi. Thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com.
Diabetes or diabetes is a condition in which the control of sugar in the blood becomes disrupted. Initially, diabetes often does not cause any symptoms, so it appears "mild". But over time, the persistently high sugar condition will cause complications in various organs such as blood vessels, nerves, eyes, kidneys, heart and brain. These complications can generally be prevented with good sugar control. If complications arise, special handling is needed related to complications that occur together with blood sugar control which must be carried out.
Regarding the condition of the sore feet, this is caused by complications of diabetes in the blood vessels and nerves in the legs which are commonly referred to as diabetic neuropathy. Handling for this situation can be through non pharmacology and pharmacology. For non-pharmacology, namely regular exercise, avoiding smoking, avoiding alcohol, maintaining an ideal body weight, adopting a healthy diet. For pharmacological treatment, generally using drugs for nerve pain such as drugs that you have taken before. Apart from using drugs, it can also be accompanied by physical therapy or acupuncture to help relieve pain that is tailored to the patient's condition. Treatment of complications of diabetic neuropathy is generally to relieve symptoms, slow down the course of the disease, and restore body function to the maximum extent possible so that it takes a long time.
We recommend that you consult a doctor directly and regularly control your blood sugar in order to avoid further complications. The doctor will adjust the therapy to your blood sugar level and your condition to achieve optimal results. You don't need to worry about using the drug if it is according to the doctor's advice. Doctors will consider the benefits outweigh the adverse effects of a drug to be given to a patient.
So, hopefully this is useful.
