Recognize the 'numbness' that must be treated both the cause and the consequence.
is a condition in which some parts of the nervous system are damaged or deteriorated causing the conduction of nerve impulses to different parts of the body is damaged or slowed down, which is caused by a condition in which the body has too many free radicals to eliminate. The disease is most common in people with diabetes. The most common symptom is numbness, which usually begins with numbness of both feet and then increases until noticeable numbness in the tip of the hand.
Other causes may be alcoholism, vitamin B deficiency, heavy metal accumulation in the body, for example, people who use pesticides, are regularly exposed to arsenic and lead. If the cause is not found and allowed symptoms to progress, other complications may arise with more severity, such as wound on the feet, abdominal distension, vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, unable to control urination, erectile dysfunction etc.
Treat neuroinflammation on the point.
In the treatment, it is necessary to determine the exact cause first. Blood tests, urine tests, X-rays, or other special tests may be required then treat according to the cause found, such as, if it is caused by diabetes, sugar levels must be controlled. If it is caused by beriberi must be treated with vitamin B group. If it is caused by alcoholism, alcohol consumption must be reduced, etc. And if limb weakness occurs, physical therapy may also be given. Treatment right on the spot can help cure the disease.
There are two groups of neurodegenerative drugs:
Treatment with vitamin B complex to alleviate and repair nerves.
'B vitamins' are essential for the maintenance of the nervous system, contribute to the production of neurotransmitters and help repair nerves, thereby reducing numbness in the hands and feet. Such B vitamins include vitamin B1, vitamin B6, folic acid and vitamin B12, and for vitamin B12. Several studies have shown that taking 1,500 mcg of vitamin B12 daily for 12 weeks can significantly help treat neuropathies because vitamin B12 helps maintain nerve membrane repair.
Treatment with antioxidants help treat the underlying cause of numbness and prevent complications from diabetes.
In diabetic patients, there is a very high amount of free radicals in the body (Oxidative stress), causing the deterioration of various organs faster. Studies have shown that although diabetes patients try to control their blood sugar levels within the normal range, more than 20% of them still develop complications. In the early stages, there may be a deterioration of the nerve endings, pain, numbness in the tip of the hands and feet. The later stage will cause disorders of the nervous system that controls the functions of the heart, kidneys and digestion. Therefore, the treatment of neuropathy at the root cause requires the use of antioxidants in order to prevent or reduce the complications of diabetes. The group of antioxidants involved in the treatment of numbness and nervous system inflammation include vitamin E, alpha lipoic acid, zinc, chromium, copper, carotenoids, etc.
