Diabetes.org suggests that managing diabetes effectively can be one of the best treatments for neuropathy because it can minimize the symptoms of nerve pain and prevent further nerve damage that would cause additional nerve pain. Diabetes.org recommends regularly checking your glucose levels and keeping your blood glucose levels within your target range.
To deal with specific conditions related to nerve pain, Diabetes.org recommends checking your hands and feet very carefully every day to check for signs of infection. You should use a mirror to look for problems on the bottoms of the feet and use your hands to feel for unusual spots on the feet. Diabetes.org recommends looking carefully for cuts, dry skin, bumps, warm or cold spots, sores and breaks in the skin. If any of these symptoms are present, you should consult with a doctor quickly. Nerve damage can result in amputation of the foot in serious cases, so it is best to catch and treat foot infections early.
