How Treatment May Provide Up to 3 Months of Pain Relief for People With Diabetic Nerve Pain of Feet


Over 37 million people are living with diabetes. One of the consequences is diabetic nerve pain, a type of nerve damage, most often affecting the feet. QUTENZA® (capsaicin) 8% topical system is approved for diabetic nerve pain of the feet. QUTENZA® comes in the form a patch and works by targeting the nerves responsible for pain. Managing diabetic nerve pain can be complex, which is why a coordinated multi-disciplinary approach is often needed. Today we’re sitting down with endocrinologist Dr. Jia, podiatrist Dr. Teichman, and interventional pain management specialist Dr. Durbhakula to learn how they are helping patients understand the complications that can arise from their diabetes, recognize the pain in their feet, and feel confident talking to their providers about available treatment options. QUTENZA® is a different treatment that can be used for patients that have tried and failed multiple therapies, have experienced side effects from oral pain medication, and want to avoid the use of opioids, or are just beginning to experience diabetic nerve pain.

QUTENZA® (capsaicin) 8% topical system is a topical system that works differently and is the first FDA-approved topical treatment of neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) of the feet in adults.

Please see Important Safety Information below and Full Prescribing Information. QUTENZA® A is applied for 30-minutes at your healthcare provider’s office. It has been shown to reduce diabetic nerve pain of the feet for up to three months and it can be used with or without other medications.

We’ll also meet Dona Marie who experienced diabetic nerve pain for almost a decade, trying and failing multiple therapies and seeing a variety of physicians before Dr. Teichman stepped in to help. Dona Marie was treated with QUTENZA® a different treatment approach that has shown to provide up to 3 months of pain relief for people with diabetic nerve pain of the feet.
