As a neuropathologist, I work with individuals diagnosed with diabetes and the results are often devastating. The main reasons for this are related to the complexity of the disease and the fact that people living with diabetes are at higher risk of having complications related to it.
Diabetes can strike at any point in an individual’s life, but people with diabetes are more vulnerable. Diabetes mellitus is the most common type of diabetes, although there are different forms. It is a condition where the body produces excess sugar, which causes serious damage to insulin-producing cells.
When insulin becomes overactive, it creates damage to the pancreatic islets, resulting in chronic hyperglycemia and a rise in blood glucose. As a diabetic neuropathologist, their job is to look at the results of the diagnosis and the progression of the disease and to make recommendations to the patient regarding ways to control the disease.
Diabetic neuropathologist use many tests to see how the cells in the body are responding to insulin and what the patient is eating, as well as other aspects of their health. These tests are used by the neuropathologist to make recommendations to the diabetic patient about ways to improve the condition of their body and lower their risk of developing complications.

The diagnosis of diabetes is often made by a medical professional such as a doctor, nutritionist, pharmacist or a dietitian. The diagnosis of diabetes can vary from individual to individual and may require various tests.
A neuropathologist is a medical professional trained to study the medical conditions of the brain and nervous system and to make diagnoses about the condition of the body. The most common way a neuropathologist diagnoses diabetes is by measuring levels of glucose in the blood as well as the levels of a specific enzyme, gluconate dehydrogenase (GDH), in the nerve cells.
The Glutamate dehydrogenase breaks down glucose into two simple sugars
If there are not enough gluconate dehydrogenase molecules to do this, then the nerve cells will not be able to absorb glucose will continue to leak from the nerve cells to the bloodstream. This leak will cause a high blood glucose level.
Neuropathologist diagnosis can also be made by using a blood test called glucosamine hydroxymethyltransferase or a test called positron emission tomography (PET) to show the amount of glucose in the bloodstream.
The brain uses glucose as fuel when it receives blood from the bloodstream. When the brain does not have sufficient glucose to give the brain fuel, it uses a fuel that it produces to give it fuel. The neuropathologist’s job is to figure out how the nerve cells are responding to insulin.
They will use several types of tests to show where the cells in the brain are being damaged and what type of insulin is causing the damage.
Neuropathologist diagnosis of diabetes does not occur overnight; it takes a lot of work
The neuropathologist will work closely with the diabetic patient and their family to monitor their glucose levels and make recommendations on the best way to help them control the disease and lower their risk of complications.
With the correct diet, regular exercise and the right medication the neuropathologist can provide great support to those suffering from diabetes and improve their quality of life.
Diabetes and neuropathy do have some common causes
A lot of research has been done on these causes and they have been found to be common among people with diabetes and in certain countries people with diabetes are more prone to neuropathy than people with diabetes that do not suffer from diabetes.
For example, diabetic patients may lose their sense of taste and smell, experience muscle weakness and numbness in their extremities and experience a loss of the sense of balance. Neuropathy occurs when there are not enough nerves in the body that send messages to the brain.
These signals can lead to a person not able to feel pain and other problems related to this type of neurological disease. The neuropathy can also affect the nerves that carry messages from the brain to muscles.
The nerve cells in the brain will not function properly due to nerve damage. Neuropathy and diabetes have some common symptoms as well, including
- Numbness and tingling and the inability to feel movement
- Neuropathy can lead to problems with the feet, ankles and legs
Types Of Neuropathies
Neuropathy refers to any disease that affects the nervous system. Neuropathy occurs when excessive levels of sugar or fat in your blood interfere with the functioning of your nerve. It is usually an early stage disease, which gets progressively worse over time as symptoms become worse.
If left untreated, neuropathy can cause paralysis or amputation of limbs. It can affect all areas of the body but is more common in your hands and feet. Because it is so widespread, there are many different types of neuropathy available for treatment.
Here is a list of the most common types of neuropathy
Spinal Cord Injury: This type of neuropathy can occur because of a spinal cord injury. This injury can occur from an accident, disease, or injury to the spinal cord. This type of neuropathy occurs in one or both legs and can be very painful. In order to treat this type of neuropathy, you need to have surgery performed on the area where your nerves are damaged.
Surgery may be required to remove the damaged nerves. However, there are many other options for treating this type of neuropathy. You can try using prescription drugs to relieve the pain, or you can also use a form of physical therapy to build the strength of your legs.
Neuropathy caused by Diabetes: There are several medications that you can take to treat your diabetes. These medications are often used to help reduce the amount of sugar in your blood. Unfortunately, they can also lead to neuropathy.
If you take diabetes medication, such as oral medications or insulin, then you should always talk to your doctor about your treatment options. There are also natural anti-diabetic medications that are not harmful to your nerve tissue.
If you do choose these non-medication options, then you will need to keep track of how much and what type of anti-diabetic medication you take. You should also make sure that you eat a healthy diet, and exercise regularly to maintain good health.
