What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is basically nerve damage. Many individuals that suffer from Diabetes will often develop Diabetic Neuropathy. (Note: you do not have to have Diabetes to have Neuropathy, but the two conditions are often associated).
Diabetic Neuropathy usually affects the feet, ankle and lower limbs but can affect other areas in the body as well, like your thighs, hips, and even internal organs.
There are four types of Diabetic Neuropathy: peripheral, autonomic, proximal, and focal.
Peripheral Neuropathy affects the extremities like your fingers and toes. This form of neuropathy is most often found in the feet, ankles and lower limbs.
Autonomic Neuropathy affects the organs of the body, like your lungs, intestines, liver, sex organs and even your heart.
Proximal Neuropathy affects the one side of the body in the thighs, hips, and buttocks leaving you feeling "weak in the legs".
Focal Neuropathy is usually a temporary even affecting nerves in any part of the body. Thighs, chest, eyes, pelvis, lower back, chest, legs feet, the abdomen and even your ears.
Causes of Neuropathy in your Feet:
High glucose levels in the blood can start too damage the cells and tissues in muscles, joints and nerve endings.
Damage to nerve endings is common in the feet and can develop into numbness, tingling and even a complete lack of touch sensitivity.
Gradually the numbness and lack of sensitivity may cause cuts, puncture wounds and other foot injures to go unnoticed. This can create secondary foot conditions and health complications.
Wearing Prolotex™ Infrared Socks on a regular basis can help improve the circulation to your toes and restore the sensitivity.
FIR Therapy Socks may not eliminate Neuropathy but it will help you cope with the disease.
Apart from monitoring your sugar levels and consulting regularly with your physician, we suggest wearing Prolotex™ Far Infrared Socks.
The FIR (Far Infrared Rays) energy emitted from Prolotex™ Socks will help restore the sensitivity to your feet and toes. FIR helps promote circulation and helps heal cells and tissues damaged from high blood sugar levels.
Wearing Prolotex™ Infrared Socks on a regular basis can help you cope with the diabetic neuropathy complications in your feet.
You can wear them at night and during the day, the more the better.
If you have an advanced case of Diabetes, we suggest wearing the WHITE socks so that you will be able to quickly notice if you have cuts and scrapes on you feet.
FIR Socks for Neuropathy:
The threads in Prolotex™ Socks are blended with a safe formula of bio-ceramics that emit beneficial far infrared rays (FIR).
These safe waves of soothing FIR energy penetrate deep into the tissues of your toes.
This soothing energy restores the health of your toes and feet by increasing the molecular activity of the cells.
The stimulation of the tiny capillaries and veins in your toes and feet dilate the cells and allow fresh oxygenated blood containing vital nutrients to reach the over stress areas.
Better circulation to the skin means better overall health of your feet.
