Millions of people in the United States suffer from peripheral neuropathy. Yet, many may not recognize neuropathy symptoms until significant damage has already taken place. That’s why you must provide patients with education about this condition. The symptoms of neuropathy shouldn’t be ignored. They require intervention with a customized neuropathy program.
Did you know that 60 to 70 percent of individuals with neuropathy have diabetes? Or that 30 to 40 percent of those suffering from the condition have received chemotherapy treatment for cancer? As for the remaining 30 percent, many of these individuals have human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). But there are also other causes of neuropathy.
Nitric oxide is an essential molecule that promotes vasodilation and proper circulation. It enhances physical performance, brain function, and lowers blood pressure. And when it comes to supporting neuropathic treatments? Nitric oxide reduces inflammation and oxidative stress, and it can support better therapeutic outcomes.
Do your patients understand the differences between nitrate and L-Arginine supplementation? Especially when it comes to nitric oxide and well-being? If not, they may not see significant favorable outcomes when it comes to Neurolight Treatment. What’s more, the wrong supplementation could come with serious health complications. Nowhere does this prove truer than with patients dealing with neuropathy and diabetes.
Products containing L-Arginine and L-Citrulline have flooded the market in recent years. They prove enticing for those hoping to ramp up their nitric oxide levels. But are these products effective? Research shows us otherwise. L-Arginine and L-Citrulline supplementation can even pose health problems. Especially for diabetic patients and those with neuropathy. This knowledge leads to a conundrum for chiropractors and physical therapists. How do you help patients make better decisions for boosting nitric oxide levels?
