Diabetes is a condition where the sufferer’s pancreas cannot make the insulin that is necessary to take glucose from the blood and use it to nourish the cells of the body and give them energy. We hear lots about diabetes and most people know there is type 1 and Type 1 diabetes and all the various complications that can arise with them, but the complication of diabetic amyotrophy is less commonly mentioned.
In some cases, it is referred to as proximal neuropathy as well. The most typical diabetic neuropathies start in the limbs. That explains the birth of the term – proximal neuropathy. The most typical symptoms comprise unexpected slashing pain in the buttocks and other tight areas of the body.
