The exact cause of nerve damage (diabetic neuropathy) is unclear. Many factors are known to contribute to this condition, the most important are the levels of blood sugar.
– Reduced blood flow : causes of diabetes reduces the relaxation of blood vessels leading to nerve flow problems
– The damage to nerve proteins : Depletion of myelin proteins that are important for nerve conduction. Glycosylation of the structural proteins of the nerves leading to the decrease of nerve conduction
– Oxidative stress : Increased production of oxygen free radicals produced by oxidative stress and damage
-accumulation of sorbitol and Fructose nerve.
– Risk factors include poor control of blood sugar, alcohol intake, hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, obesity, advanced age, family history, duration of diabetes
-depending on the extent of damage and the function that is affected due to nerve damage, sometimes it is possible to reverse or reduce damage by medication and lifestyle changes.
