Diabetic Neuropathy - Nerve Pain and Numbness
An estimated 60 percent of all people with diabetes have some form of diabetic neuropathy, the nerve damage caused by long-term effects of diabetes. Symptoms can include numbness, tingling, prickling, and sometimes pain, burning, cramping, or extreme sensitivity to touch.(nerve pain, neuropathy causes, neuropathy symptoms)

Inositol
Inositol is a water soluble B vitamin that is essential for helping the cells in the body communicate and is involved in cellular responses to the actions of certain body hormones and chemicals that are released from nerves, called neurotransmitters. Experiments are currently looking at altering the levels of inositol and other chemicals to reduce nerve damage in diabetes. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Nutrition, Prevention Neuropathy)

A Natural Approach to Diabetes
Many diabetics have low blood levels of B6. Levels are even lower in diabetics with nerve damage. Supplementation with Vitamins B6 and B12, including a form of B12 called methylcobalamin, play an important role in the prevention and treatment of many forms of diabetic neuropathy. (Diabetes Nutrition, Polyneuropathy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate)

If I Don't Feel Sick, How Can High Blood Sugars Hurt Me?
Complications from diabetes come on over time, and damage has often started before we realize something is wrong. The belief that "as long as I feel well I must be well" does not hold true for the complications of diabetes; they come on quietly. (neuropathy prevention, diabetic complications, diabetic neuropathy)

Alpha Lipoic Acid Reverses Nerve Damage In Diabetics
Nerve damage is one of diabetes' most devastating complications and affects more than 50 percent of all diabetics. Its typical course is relentlessly downhill and there are no effective medicines to treat it. But now there is hope. A study recently published in Diabetes Care reports that the antioxidant nutrient alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) can partly restore diabetic nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)

Hitting A Nerve
Neuropathy is one of the best arguments to fight blood glucose control. It's a nerve disorder that can affect almost every system in your body. It results from bursts of high blood glucose that cause oxidative stress to the nerves. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Autonomic Neuropathy)

All The Nerve
One of the most common long-term repercussions of high blood glucose levels is diabetic neuropathy, or nerve damage. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), about two-thirds of those with diabetes have some form of this complication. (Diabetes Management, Neuropathy Symptoms, Preventing Neuropathy)

Ginkgo Biloba
Studies suggest that Ginkgo Biloba increases blood flow to the nerve-rich fibers of the eyes and ears and may be of value in treating macular degeneration or diabetes-related eye disease. Ongoing studies are assessing the possible effectiveness of ginkgo in speeding up recovery from certain strokes and head injuries, as well as in treating other conditions that may be related to circulatory or nervous system impairment, including nerve damage tied to diabetes.  (Diabetes Nutrition, Herb for Diabetes, Nerve Damage)

Mastering Your Diabetes (Before Diabetes Masters You)
If you have numbness in your feet, is there any point to controlling blood sugars? (Neuropathy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)

Vitamin B12 Screening Urged for Metformin Users
 A study presented in June 2009 at the American Diabetes Association's 69th Annual Scientific Sessions, looked at the prevalence of vitamin B12 deficiency in 76 people with type 2 diabetes who had been taking Metformin for at least one year. The results showed that more than 75% of Metformin users who had low vitamin B12 levels also had evidence of peripheral neuropathy. 

Hard To Digest
Diabetes related nerve damage can cause mild to severe digestive problems. Neuropathy most commonly affects the arms and legs, but for around half of those who have diabetes, the digestive system is the affected area. Signs, symptoms and dietary solutions are discussed. (diabetic neuropathy, reflux, diabetes meal planning)

Diabetes and Neuropathy
Diabetic Neuropathy can affect virtually every part of the body. Diabetic nerve damage eventually affects some 65 percent of people with diabetes. As with other diabetes complications, poor blood glucose control lies at the root of neuropathy. Symptoms and types of neuropathy. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Autonomic Neuropathy, Focal Neuropathy)

Why You Need the Bs
B-complex vitamins are essential for your body to convert sugar and starches to energy, a chemical process called carbohydrate metabolism.  A shortage of any one of them can cause problems.  Vitamin B6 deficiency has been linked to glucose intolerance, which is an abnormally high rise in blood sugar after eating. (Diabetes Nutrition and Diabetes Management)

Supplement Snapshot - Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALC)
The strongest research of Acetyl L-Carnitine is for relief of diabetic neuropathy symptoms; some studies show pain relief and possible nerve regeneration. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Type 2 Diabetes)

The Power of GLA
Science has established rather conclusively that GLA halts the otherwise inevitable advance of nerve damage caused by diabetes. GLA helps the nerves to heal. (Diabetic Neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, diabetic product )
