Diabetic Neuropathy

 

Individuals with diabetes may experience a condition known as diabetic neuropathy.  It is a type of nerve damage that can occur when high blood sugar (glucose) injures nerves throughout the body. Diabetic neuropathy most often damages nerves in the legs and feet.

Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can range from mild to severed depending on the affected nerves. People may experience pain and numbness in your legs and feet to problems with your digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels and heart. Some people have mild symptoms. But for others, diabetic neuropathy can be quite painful and disabling.

Diabetic neuropathy is a serious  complication that may affect as many as 50% diabetics. The main way to prevent or slow the progression of diabetic neuropathy is to control one’s blood sugar. Below are some other options for managing diabetic neuropathy.

Alpha Lipoic Acid

Alpha Lipoic Acid is a water and fat soluble antioxidant that is produced naturally in the human body.  Studies have shown that it can help balance blood sugars by

  • Improving insulin sensitivity
  • Balancing fasting blood sugar levels
  • Helping the body to get rid of glucose

Studies have also shown that taking 600 – 1800 mg a day of Alpha Lipoic Acid improved symptoms such as burning, pain, numbness, and prickling of the feet and legs.  Symptom improvement was seen within 3 – 5 weeks.  Click here for research article
