Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that is a serious and common complication of type I or type II diabetes. High blood sugar (glucose) can injure nerves throughout the body, most commonly on the legs and feet. Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage caused by long-term high blood sugar levels. About half of all people with diabetes have some form of nerve damage.
Depending on the affected nerves, diabetic neuropathy symptoms can range from pain and numbness in the legs and feet to problems with the digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels, and heart. Some individuals have mild symptoms but for others, diabetic neuropathy can be very painful and debilitating. Typically, symptoms of nerve damage develop gradually. Many individuals do not notice anything is wrong until considerable nerve damage has occurred.
We at Artemis Institute for Clinical Research conduct clinical trials for investigative medications for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Qualified research participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, study-related medical and psychological evaluations, and the investigative study medication at no cost. Help advance medicine and medical research through participating in our clinical trial!
