Diabetes pain management is an important aspect of reducing suffering from those affected by the disease. Millions of people of all ages across the world live and endure varying degrees of pain caused by diabetes neuropathy and its related complications. In the research, the details on diabetes self-management have been widely emphasized. This includes a number of mechanisms on self-care activities. Another critical point is on the management of foot ulcers. Like-wise, the other areas highlighted include the focus on the general meaning of diabetic neuropathies, how it affects the nerves, and the extent of how it causes pain and finally debilitating a patient if a tight control of blood sugar level is not followed. Various types of diabetic neuropathies have also been mentioned, as well as various methods of controlling and easing the pain, although pain man-agement is a really wide topic, a general method of management has been mentioned. The patient education that can guide a diabetic patient into following and adjusting to certain lifestyles are discussed. The aim of this project is to publish a book to educate the public into understanding ways of minimizing pain caused by diabetes and its related complications, and how to care for them-selves.
