Diabetic Foot Pain

You were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes several years ago and with that, you were aware that you would have to make some lifestyle and dietary changes.  What you didn’t expect when you received that initial diagnosis was someday your feet would feel like they were on fire.  What’s happening?

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, known as DPN for short, is a complication of Type 2 diabetes that occurs in over half of those living with the disease. Due to nerve damage as the result of diabetes,  people living with DPN experience pain in their legs and/or feet, tingling, numbness, burning and general discomfort. Some people feel like they are walking on pins and needles.  Others cannot get a decent night’s sleep and wake up at the slightest provocation including something as simple as a blanket rubbing against their feet.

Coastal Connecticut Research is currently involved in a diabetic nerve pain study testing an investigational medication.  People who have Type 2 diabetes and are experiencing nerve pain in their feet and/or legs may be eligible to participate in this clinical research study.  Dr. Edward McDermott is the primary investigator of the study.  Enrolled participants receive the study product and all study-related procedures at no cost.

Anyone who wishes to learn more about clinical research is welcome to call and speak to a member of the CCRstudies team at (860) 443-4567.
