Diabetes and Neuropathy
If you are familiar with Diabetes or Pre-diabetes also known as Insulin Resistance then you are probably well aware of the likely hood that you will develop neuropathy. 60-70% of Diabetics will be afflicted with peripheral Neuropathy. Another words, It needs to be on your radar!
The good news is that research over and over shows the pivotal role diet plays in this development of neuropathy.
This is why working with a Neuropathy doctorwho sees the role of proper dietary intervention and functional medicine is critical.
Sadly, many neuropathy sufferers will never find a doctor knowledgeable in dietary intervention and the latest customized treatments now available to neuropathy sufferers.
Most doctors, even after all of the diagnostic testing has been done, still only use pain medications, antidepressants and tranquilizers and sleeping pills as their tools in the tool box. This never addressed the underlying cause.

Diabetes, Metabolic syndrome, drug use, spinal injury such as degenerative disc disease, spinal canal stenosis, herniated disc, back surgery, genes, and gluten sensitivity all increase the risk of neuropathy. So what causes people who have diabetes to develop neuropathic symptoms? It is generally agreed that exposure to high blood glucose (high blood sugar) has a negative effect on nerve condition.
Sometimes Called Insulin Resistance, Pre-Diabetes or Metabolic Syndrome is has become an epidemic in our society. Just take a look around at the number of individuals overweight. Our society is quickly approaching 60% of the population being overweight. You can only imagine as the population continues to move towards obesity, so too will the number of diabetes cases pre diabetes and neuropathy cases. This again is why dietary management is so important.
Peripheral neuropathy symptoms include pain, numbness, tingling, shock like sensations and many other sensation-related symptoms that often cause problems with stability.

I agree whole heartedly with many doctors and the latest research studies that point out the only treatmentwith any efficacy for pre diabetic and diabetic neuropathy is lifestyle modification. That means taking pills to artificially lower your blood glucose is not going to improve control of high blood sugar and cardiovascular risk factors. You can’t eat your Krispy Kreme doughnuts and have good blood sugar control.
