A study to examine the use of cognitive behavioral therapy to treat diabetic neuropathy found that study participants who attended 11 one-hour, goal-oriented CBT sessions reported less pain and less interference from pain in their daily lives after four months than did a control group that received standard treatment. Participants were veterans 18 years of age or older who have type 2 diabetes, according to a Boston University School of Medicine release. The study was conducted by researchers at BUSM and VA Boston Healthcare System and was published in the Journal of Pain.
