Hi, Thanks for asking. Based on your query, my opinion is as follows. 1. Good glucose control is necessary to prevent progression of diabetic neuropathy and well as all other complications, including nephropathy. Check HbA1C levels, it should be within 6.5 at all times. 2. Evening primrose oil and alpha lipoic acid are known to be very helpful in neuropathy. 3. If neuropathy is painful, gabapentin or pregabalin can be taken. You can take prescription from your doctor. If glucose levels come to normal, complications will progress slowly and infection level will also reduce. Hope it helps. Any further queries, happy to help again.
