Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can occur if you have diabetes. High blood sugar (glucose) can injure nerves throughout your body. Diabetic neuropathy most often damages nerves in your legs and feet. You may qualify for a paid clinical trial for diabetes related pain if:

  • At least age 18 and have had Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes for more than six months
  • HbA1c <11%
  • Symptoms of neuropathy for at least six months
    • Pain, numbness, tingling, burning or weakness in hands or feet
    • Sensitivity to touch or loss of sense of touch
  • BMI < 40 kg/m

Diabetic neuropathy is a serious and common complication of type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It’s a type of nerve damage caused by long-term high blood sugar levels. The condition usually develops slowly, sometimes over the course of several decades. If you have diabetes and notice numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in your hands or feet, you should see your doctor. These are early symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. The danger is usually when you can’t feel pain and an ulcer develops on your foot.

In cases of severe or prolonged peripheral neuropathy, you may be vulnerable to injuries or infections. In serious cases, poor wound healing or infection can lead to amputation.

You may qualify for a paid clinical trial for diabetes related pain if you have:

  • At least age 18 and have had Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes for more than six months
  • HbA1c <11%
  • Symptoms of neuropathy for at least six months
    • Pain, numbness, tingling, burning or weakness in hands or feet
    • Sensitivity to touch or loss of sense of touch
  • BMI < 40 kg/m
  • No use of marijuana or CBD for 30 days prior to starting study
  • Good kidney function (tested at screening)

This is a 36-week paid clinical trial to study the reduction in pain from an investigational medication. Participants will receive free study medication and related medical services. Payment and transportation are available.
