Dear Anon,

Thank you for reaching out.

While you cannot reverse the damage from neuropathy, there are ways to help manage the condition, including:

-lowering your blood sugar
-treating nerve pain
-physical therapy (if prescribed) may help
-regularly checking your feet to make sure they are free of injury, wounds, or infection
-Sticking with your doctor's prescribed course of treatment.
