Chronic Diabetic Nerve Pain in Feet and Hands?

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Clinical Trials may be an option for you!

Diabetic nerve pain (also called diabetic peripheral neuropathy or DPN) if left untreated, can lead to serious complications. Despite recent advances in diabetic nerve pain treatments, there is a need for more effective and advanced treatment options.

Right now, doctors near you at select centers in the US, including our sites at Revival Research Institute are conducting a research study for people with moderate to severe diabetic nerve pain in feet and hands.
You may qualify for diabetic peripheral neuropathy clinical trials if you:

  • Are above 18 years of age
  • Have a diagnosis of Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes 
  • Have pain in the extremities due to DPN for at least 6 months 

Men and women who suffer from diabetic nerve pain and fulfill the above criteria are eligible to participate in this diabetic peripheral neuropathy clinical trial.

*There is no cost to you or your private medical insurance to participate in this clinical research trial. You will be monetarily compensated for your time and travel. All participants receive study-related care from doctors & health care professionals, free of cost.

*If you think you may be eligible to participate in the Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Clinical Trial or would like more information, please enter your information so we can see if you may qualify and can contact you about the study. Your participation in the diabetic peripheral neuropathy clinical trials is completely voluntary. 

Please provide YOUR contact information only.

About the Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Clinical Trial

Revival Research Institute is conducting a phase 2 Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Clinical Trial. The purpose of the study is to investigate the safety and efficacy of an investigational diabetic nerve pain treatment that may be able to help people suffering from chronic pain due to this condition. The total length of this study is approximately 54 weeks and people the age of 18 years will be eligible to enroll in the diabetic peripheral neuropathy clinical trial.

To be eligible to qualify for the diabetic peripheral neuropathy clinical trial, participants must have a diagnosis of type 1 or type 2 diabetes and should feel pain in their pain in extremities (diabetic nerve pain in feet and hands), for at least 6 months.

We are assessing the safety and efficacy of an oral study drug that may help people with symptoms of this condition, including diabetic nerve pain in feet and hands. The tolerability of the drug will be monitored by collecting information on adverse events, clinical laboratory results, ECG findings, and vital signs throughout the study period.

*The study drug procedures are free of charge to all the participants. People who meet the study’s eligibility requirements will be compensated for their time and travel. No insurance is required to volunteer. 

Get Started: What to Expect?

To see if you qualify for the diabetic peripheral neuropathy clinical trial, please fill out your information in the form and we will contact you. If you do qualify for this round, you will be invited to our study site for a screening visit.  After further screenings, if you qualify, you will be asked to sign an informed consent form. Once it’s signed, you will be asked health-related questions, and several health assessments and tests will be conducted to help determine if you are eligible as a volunteer.

If you qualify as a participant, you will be provided with a study drug that must be taken orally. Your participation in the study will last for approximately a total of 54 weeks. The study team will continue to monitor your health throughout the duration of your participation in the diabetic peripheral neuropathy clinical trial. There is no cost to you to participate in the study and you will receive study-related care from expert physicians and healthcare professionals.

About Diabetic Nerve Pain in Feet and Hands

diabetic peripheral neuropathy study

Diabetic Nerve Pain (also known as Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy or DPN) is the most common complication of diabetes. It is caused by multiple factors. 

What DPN Does To Your Body? 

Nerves in your extremities and other regions of your body are damaged by chronically high blood sugar (glucose) levels. These injured nerves are unable to carry signals between the brain and the rest of the body. It’s possible that you won’t feel heat, cold, or discomfort in your feet, legs, or hands as a result of this. You may not notice a cut or pain in your foot, which is why it’s critical to examine your feet on a regular basis if you have diabetes and suffer from chronic diabetic nerve pain in your feet and hands (lower extremities). 

Symptoms of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy  

For many, the early signs of diabetic peripheral neuropathy include; numbness, cramping, tingling, prickling, and a burning feeling. For others, one of the signs is an overabundance of sensitivity to touch. Take note of any of the aforementioned symptoms. People with diabetic nerve pain are usually requested to check their hands and feet as they usually are unable to feel when they get injured or hurt. If not addressed on time, this could lead to severe complications. Know about your condition and don’t ignore the symptoms you notice because, with time, it may get worse.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is diabetic peripheral neuropathy?

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is nerve damage caused by chronically high blood sugar (glucose), most commonly due to uncontrolled diabetes. It leads to loss of sensation, numbness, prickling, and sometimes diabetic nerve pain in your feet, and hands (lower extremities). It is the most frequent complication of diabetes.

Is peripheral neuropathy reversible in a diabetic?

Nerve damage from diabetes can’t be reversed. This is because the body can’t naturally repair nerve tissues that have been damaged. However, symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy can be manageable. With the right choice of diabetic nerve pain treatment and the right support from your physicians, there can be better outcomes. 

For many, clinical trials may be an option. At Revival Research Institute, our professional research staff and highly experienced physicians are dedicated to helping you and countless others find relief from DPN.

If I choose to take part in the study, how will my safety be protected?

As per the requirement of every clinical research organization, we must follow guidelines and regulatory requirements to help protect the rights, safety, and well-being of all participants. These include Good Clinical Practice (GCP). GCP is an international scientific and ethical, quality standard for clinical trial design and execution.
Many entities are involved in your and other volunteers’ participation. This includes the Institutional Review Boards (IRB), and data safety and monitoring boards. To learn more about the safety of your information, please visit our Privacy Policy, or for further clarification, contact us

Is there a cost to participate?

You will receive study-related care and the study treatment at no cost to you or your insurance provider.

How do you fix diabetic peripheral neuropathy?

While there are several diabetic nerve pain treatments available, however, they don’t work for everyone and can also cause unwanted side effects from the treatments. There is no way to fix diabetic nerve pain, however, the symptoms are manageable with the right diet, controlling your blood glucose levels, and taking care of your hands and feet.

Revival Research Institute aims to find potential treatments for diseases and conditions. We have conducted multiple research studies for various diseased states in the hope of advancing healthcare and redefining patient care. We are conducting clinical trials in search of potential treatments for diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Our professional research staff includes some of the best physicians and endocrinologists in Michigan and Texas.

Where can I find an endocrinologist near me to participate in a peripheral diabetic neuropathy research study?

We try to match our volunteers to study center locations that are close to them, at approximately a 50-mile radius or less. Our research staff includes highly qualified and experienced physicians, endocrinologists, and nurses. They may be able to help sift through options available, including participating in clinical trials so that you may be able to find new and potential treatment options for your condition.
