Diabetic Neuropathic Pain

Topical compounded medications may play a key role in the armamentarium of treatments for diabetic neuropathy, particularly patients who have

multiple comorbidities and polypharmacy issues. Accordingly, this author demonstrates how compounding can optimize drug concentration at the

site of pain with a lower risk of adverse sequelae.

Diabetic Neuropathic Pain

The treatment of diabetic neuropathy includes efforts to correct the underlying metabolic disorder as well as addressing symptomatology

associated with diabetic neuropathy.

Neuropathy secondary to diabetes is likely the most common peripheral neuropathy that podiatrists treat. The pathologic basis for diabetic

neuropathy remains unclear and there are no proven therapies that studies have demonstrated to universally interdict or reverse the progression

of diabetic neuropathy. However, some therapies are helpful at reducing symptomatology secondary to diabetic sensory neuropathy, preventing

further nerve degeneration and possibly enhancing the regrowth of nerves.1

Diabetic Neuropathic Pain

Diabetic neuropathy typically begins as a small fiber neuropathy affecting the small unmyelinated or thinly myelinated nerve fibers that subserve

pain, temperature perception, heart rate, blood pressure, sweat function and gastrointestinal function.
