Neuropathy Most Likely To Strike In Type 2 Diabetes Not In Type 1
Painful neuropathy is more common in patients with type 2 diabetes than in those with type 1, due to metabolic syndrome, researchers suggest, because of a link with the metabolic syndrome. (Diabetic Complications, Polyneuropathy, Metabolic Syndrome)

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)

Diabetic Nerve Change Begins Early
Recent research reports subtle changes in nerve conduction as the first reliable sign of nerve complications from diabetes.  The researchers said that change can be measured long before other symptoms or signs of nerve damage develop. About half of people with diabetes develop some type of neuropathy caused indirectly by high blood sugar levels. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Neuropathy Symptoms, Diabetes Research)

Diabetic Neuropathies
Neuropathies lead to numbness and sometimes pain and weakness in the hands, arms, feet, and legs. Problems may also occur in every organ system, including the digestive tract, heart, and sex organs. An estimated 50 percent of those with diabetes have some form of neuropathy, but not all with neuropathy have symptoms.  (Types of Neuropathy, Proximal Neuropathy, Focal Neuropathy, Neuropathy Treatment)

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)

Neuropathy Complication - Charcot's Foot
Sometimes neuropathy can trigger a cascade of diabetes related complications, such as Charcot's foot (Charcot's joint). This disorder usually affects weight-bearing joints, such as the ankles. The key to treating Charcot's foot involves keeping weight off the joint and wearing special footwear. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Neuropathy Symptoms, Types of Neuropathy, Neuroarthropathy)

Neuropathy - Nutrient Therapies
Biotin, choline, inositol, and thiamine are B vitamins that have all been found useful in treating the peripheral and autonomic neuropathies found in diabetes. In addition, Alpha-lipoic acid has long been used in Europe for the treatment of peripheral neuropathy in diabetics. Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been found to have important links to peripheral nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Benfotiamine, Diabetic Product, Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid- Nature's Perfect Antioxidant
Alpha-lipoic acid is an approved drug in Germany for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy. Although alpha-lipoic acid's primary effect in improving neuropathy is thought to be the result of its antioxidant effects, it has also been shown to lead to an improvement in blood sugar metabolism, improve blood flow to peripheral nerves, and actually stimulate the regeneration of nerve fibers. (diabetes treatment, diabetic nutrition, preventing neuropathy)

Why Every Diabetic Needs to Take Vitamin D
Research shows that low blood levels of vitamin D are linked to a higher risk for developing diabetes. New studies show that even if you already have diabetes, you still need more vitamin D to lower your risk of developing nerve pain (diabetic neuropathy).

Alpha-Lipoic Acid and Peripheral Neuropathy
There are probably more studies attesting to the benefits of  alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) for dealing with peripheral neuropathy than studies for any other nutrient. ALA is known as a "universal antioxidant." In addition to its remarkable abilities as a natural antioxidant, it is noted for protecting nerves from oxidative damage and inflammation. (preventing neuropathy, diabetic nutrition)

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. 

Biotin and Diabetic Neuropathy
People with type 2 diabetes often have low levels of biotin, which is a B vitamin. There have been reports of biotin supplements improving the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy for some people who developed this condition from either long-standing diabetes or on-going hemodialysis for kidney failure. (diabetes treatment, neuropathy product, nerve damage)

Benfotiamine - Protection Against Diabetic Complications
Benfotiamine, a little-known fat-soluble form of vitamin B1, has been shown to help prevent the development and progression of many diabetic complications. Used for decades in Europe as a prescription medication, benfotiamine fights against the progression of diabetic nerve, kidney, and retinal damage, and relieves the painful symptoms of diabetic neuropathy

Antioxidant Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA)
A collaborative study between Mayo Clinic and a medical center in Russia found that alpha lipoic acid (ALA) significantly and rapidly reduces the frequency and severity of symptoms of the most common kind of diabetic neuropathy.  (Neuropathy and Diabetic Complications)

Diabetics Who Control Blood Sugar Today
People with diabetes who keep their blood sugar in check today will probably have a far lower chance of developing foot pain or other nerve damage tomorrow, according to new research results from a national study. (Diabetes Research, Neuropathy, Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes)
