Washington: In a new study, researchers have shown that there is evidence to support a new drug therapy called nabilone to treat diabetic neuropathy, or nerve pain.For the study, researchers at the University of Calgary’s Hotchkiss Brain Institute Researchers enrolled 60 patients with diabetic neuropathy in a 12-week placebo controlled clinical study.At the end of the study, the patients reported less pain and an improvement in sleep and anxiety when taking nabilone as compared to the placebo.“This is a good option to help treat nerve pain due to diabetes, with very few side effects,” Dr. Cory Toth, lead researcher of the study, said.The medication used in the study has the generic name nabilone, and is currently used in Canada to treat nausea in chemotherapy patients.
