24 ENDOCRINE PRACTICE Vol 10 No. 1 January/February 2004
The 27 patients who qualified for this study exhibited pain/discomforting foot sensations and abnormal sensory values using a Neurometer device. 21 patients were diagnosed with diabetes and 6 were diagnosed with other conditions that may have been associated with their symptoms.
Patients received 10 Anodyne treatments over 2 weeks in the medical office of an endocrinologist.
96% of patients receiving Anodyne treatments obtained significant relief from their pain/discomforting foot sensations, including:
- 61% reduction of impairment
- 60% were tested as having normal sensory function after treatment compared to 0% prior to treatment
- All patients who had previously failed to respond to conservative prescription medications for their symptoms (average of 7 years) improved after receiving treatment
