New Compounding Solution For Focal Neuropathy
Diabetic neuropathy is the most common complication of diabetes mellitus.
It affects as many as 50% of all diabetes sufferers.
Neuropathy can occur in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and manifest as a wide variety of sensory, motor, and autonomic symptoms.
Focal Neuropathy And A New Compounding Solution
Diabetic focal neuropathy, also called mononeuropathy, affects a single nerve.
Most often it is the nerves in the wrist, thigh, or foot.
In some cases it may also affect the nerves in the back, chest, as well as the nerves controlling the eye muscles.
Modern medicine’s answer to neuropathy involves a spectrum of drugs which include:
- Anti-seizure medications
All of the above have well-documented side effects, including:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Drowsiness or sedation
- Skin changes ( redness, itchy, bumpy )
- Respiratory complications
- Muscle pain
There is another solution…
It’s called compounding.

Symptoms Of Focal Neuropathy
Focal neuropathy is less common than peripheral or autonomic neuropathy and typically caused by compression or trauma.
This condition occurs when one nerve stops sending information correctly between the body and the brain.
When the incorrect information is received by the brain, debilitating symptoms are experienced.
Pain, numbness, and weakness are confined to a single limb or region.
The symptoms will vary depending on which nerve is affected.
These may include:
- Double vision and difficulty focusing
- Aching behind one eye
- Weakness and pain in the lower back
- Chest pain
- Abdominal pain
- Pain in the wrist
- Pain in the shin or foot
- Paralysis of one side of the face (Bell’s palsy)
- Pain in the front of the thigh
Focal neuropathies are unpredictable and usually come on suddenly.
They may improve on their own within 6 – 8 weeks.
There is usually no lasting damage to the body.
A compound cream can help speed up recovery and limit pain.
By applying a customized compound cream 2 – 4 times daily, your symptoms will be almost non-existent.
Your doctor may be able to diagnose diabetic neuropathy based on a physical exam and symptoms.
The physical exam will include:
- Blood pressure
- Heart rate
- Muscle strength
- Sensitivity to positional changes, vibration or light touch
- Nerve conduction studies or electromyography
More importantly, a frequent, comprehensive foot exam is vital in order to avoid ulcers.
This will include an assessment of the skin, muscles, bones, sensation and circulation.
Key components for the management of diabetic neuropathy includes:
- Proper and regular foot care
- Pain management
- Tight glycemic control
- Natural therapies
- Smoking increases the risk of amputation and should be avoided at all cost
Pain relief is the main priority of treatment.
Compounding For Focal Neuropathy
As with many other conditions, neuropathies are poorly treated by conventional methods and options are fairly limited.
Traditional medication has well documented, significant side effects when taken orally, wreaking havoc on the body and internal organs.
If you suffer with focal neuropathy pain daily, compounded medication can finally change everything.
What Is Compounding?
Compounding is an age old technique which makes up roughly 3% if all prescribed medication in the U.S. today.
It is a method of making prescription medication to meet the needs of individual patients.
Compounding pharmacists have the unique training and ability to create medications.
These medications are tailor-made to suit the patient.
Pharmacists work with their patients making sure to mix only the ingredients a patient can tolerate and require.
Instead of using multiple, side effect inducing prescription drugs, compounding dares to defy modern medicine by recognizing patients as unique, even when they are diagnosed with similar conditions.
Medication can be formulated with consideration to a patient’s:
- Medical history
- Physical examination
- Blood work
- Any other specific, unique requirements
Compound creams are applied topically, thus minimizing systemic side effects while maximizing local pain relief.
Other benefits include:
- Non-addictive formulations.
- Good for patients with difficulty swallowing pills.
- Perfect for patients who are not suitable candidates for traditional forms of prescription drugs.
- Delivered directly to the pain receptors.
Most of today’s health insurance companies will also pay for your compounded medications.
By using a compound cream, you could completely eliminate the need for ANY other form of medication.
A Pain-Free Future
We are all different, so why should our medication be the same?
Even in the case of focal neuropathy.
Compounding makes customized care a reality.
Live well with the help of compounding creams.
