Today, in honor of American Diabetes Month, we are announcing an educational program – Step On Up – developed as a collaboration with Pfizer for people with painful diabetic peripheral neuropathy, or diabetic nerve pain. The program features Cedric The Entertainer, whose father has type 2 diabetes and is part of the 1 in 5 people living with diabetes who suffers from diabetic nerve pain.

High blood glucose increases your risk for permanent nerve damage that can lead to burning, shooting pain in the feet or hands. Talk to your doctor about these symptoms and take a step toward some pain relief. Check out our PSA and visit. http://StepOnUp.com/ to learn more.

    deficiency, individuals who are obese, individuals with less physical
    activity and will generally be genetically acquired or inherited.
    Although, banning sweets altogether may not be necessary.
