Sometimes, all you need is a break.
A break from the PAIN.
I mean, you’ve already got a fair bit on your plate.
Needles, fingersticks, trips to the doctor, watching what you eat, checking your blood sugar levels every few hours…
And then you have to deal with pain as well!
And not just any pain.
Endless aching, burning pain.
That “pins and needles” sensation in your hands and feet.
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes.
It’s usually a result of poorly-controlled blood sugar levels.
It’s a pain in the butt.
Diabetic nerve pain develops over a period of years.
You might feel a slight tingling in your feet at first, then in your hands.
It can also feel like a numbness.
Then that numbness becomes a pain.
It’s worse at night and might keep you awake for hours.
That damned diabetes.
The worst part is that the pain only comes after the damage has been done – and it can’t be reversed.
The pain is actually your body’s way of saying, HELP!
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR BLOOD SUGAR NOW.
This is where you need to take action to control your blood sugar before more damage can be done.
You probably already know that.
And you’re probably already on top of it.

Of course, nobody likes popping pills all day long.
But you shouldn’t have to put up with pain, either.
So, let’s just look at pain-relieving drugs as a necessary evil.
