Diabetes Self-Management Blog

If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy, then you may be interested an upcoming Web-based educational seminar (or “Webinar”) from The Neuropathy Association on dealing with the condition.

Affecting up to 70% of people with diabetes, diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can cause a variety of symptoms depending on where it is located. Peripheral neuropathy, which causes pain, numbness, tingling, and other unpleasant sensations in the hands, feet, legs, and arms, is the most common type of diabetic neuropathy. Other forms of the condition may affect nerves in areas of the body such as the bladder, stomach, and penis.

In association with Pamlab, LLC, The Neuropathy Association will be offering a Webinar on dealing with diabetic neuropathy on a day-to-day basis, featuring the expertise of Steve D. Maynard, MD, and Deborah Hinnen, APRN. Once participants have registered, they can submit their questions to the speakers for consideration by e-mailing editor@neuropathy.org with “Questions for April 6th Webinar” as the subject line.

The Webinar costs $15 and will run live from 2 PM to 3:30 PM eastern time. To register, and for more information, click here.
