DPN Study

Over half of all those living with Type II Diabetes will develop DPN.

DPN, or Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, is a condition that results due to chronically high blood sugar levels resulting in nerve damage.  Symptoms of DPN can include pain, numbness and tingling in the feet, discomfort, and burning sensations.  Due to nerve damage, complications can arise for the individual living with DPN.

Diabetes has been described as a global epidemic, with nearly 26 million Americans living with the condition. Poor diet, lack of exercise, and increasing obesity rates are often to blame for the Type II diabetes crisis in the US.

CCRstudies has been enrolling eligible volunteers for a study looking at the effectiveness of a nutritional food in the treatment of diabetic foot pain.  The nutritional therapy, Metanx, is a FDA approved medication containing a combination of the active forms of folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. These vitamins are said to work together to increase blood flow to the nerves.

Metanx differs from standard over the counter vitamins since it is considered a “medical food.” Medical foods have been specially formulated to address distinct nutritional requirements of a specific disease or condition. Metanx is only available by prescription.

The study team consists of Edward J. McDermott, Jr MD, Laurence Radin MD, Andrea Stewart, APRN, Diane Palmer, RN, CCRC, Jessie Jellison, LPN, CRC and Carol Alexandrescu, MS, CRC.
