What if losing weight can help Type 2 Diabetic patients to alleviate numbness in hands, arms, feet and legs?
A recent study by Look AHEAD (action for health in diabetes) followed Type 2 Diabetics on a long-term weight loss intervention for over a year and found out their Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) symptoms decreased when compared to a controlled group (no weight loss program).
This means weight loss can help decrease/prevent in further complications like
- hospital admissions
- non-traumatic amputations
- uses of pain killer & antidepressants
- decrease in cardiovascular disease and other chronic illnesses
