Study: Exercise May Decrease Diabetes-Related Neuropathic Pain

Share on Facebook
Researchers may have found a link between exercise and decreased diabetic neuropathic pain in rats, according to Anesthesia-Analgesia.

They investigated whether exercise regulates functional recovery and heat shock protein in drug-induced diabetes. The study was conducted by dividing rats into groups based on level of exercise and diabetic status.

After two weeks, sedentary rats had a sustained hypersensitivity to tactile and heat stimuli while exercising rats had a delayed progress of hypersensitivity. Exercise also suppressed blood glucose levels and body weight loss.

Researchers concluded that progressive exercise training markedly decreases diabetes-associated neuropathic pain.
