Natural Cures for Painful Neuropathy
 Peripheral neuropathy may be one of the most common conditions you’ve never heard of. Estimates are that it affects as many as two-thirds of people with diabetes, 10% to 20% of people with cancer and 8% of all people over age 55. Symptoms include burning and tingling sensations, numbness, and occasional sharp, sudden pains similar to electrical shocks. Intensity of symptoms varies widely, from mild annoyance... to numbness severe enough to impair function... to debilitating pain.

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)

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. 

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)

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)

Peripheral Neuropathy Explained
Perhaps because it's poorly understood and not commonly discussed, peripheral neuropathy is sometimes called the "silent disease".  Yet it affects more people than rheumatoid arthritis-a much better known ailment-with just as severe consequences in its worst form. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Education)

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
Benfotiamine is a specialized form of Vitamin B1 and has been recognized for its usefulness for those with neuropathy. There are implications that benfotiamine is more beneficial in dealing with peripheral neuropathy than other forms of B1. A number of studies, in fact, have borne this out. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, neuropathy treatment, benfotamine)

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).

Other Important Supplements - Essential Fatty Acids
There are two main EFA groups: omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. EFAs are components of cell membranes the body needs but cannot manufacture itself. (Peripheral Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications, Essential Fatty Acids)

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)

Coping With Nerve Pain - B Vitamin Relief
When you lack B vitamins, you may suffer pain in your hands or feet, signs of what's called peripheral neuropathy. The good news: B supplements can help your nerves calm down and stop screaming with pain. About 15 million Americans suffer from neuropathy, a nerve problem that can damage the nervous system and cause unrelenting aches and pains. In particular, people suffering from diabetes may suffer peripheral neuropathy when the sugar in their blood reaches and remains at dangerous levels. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Management)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid Improves Neuropathy Symptoms
In people with diabetes, alpha-lipoic acid appears to enhance insulin action and blood vessel circulation, protect against diabetic neuropathy (nerve disease), and inhibit protein glycation (a reaction between excess glucose and protein that impairs the protein's function and forms harmful end products in the body). (Diabetic Neuropathy, Alpha-Lipoic Acid)

Methylcobalamin: A Potential Breakthrough in Neurological Disease
Scientists have identified a form of vitamin B12 that protects against neurological disease and aging by a unique mechanism. Over the last ten years, a number of central and peripheral neurological diseases have been linked to a deficiency of a very specific cobalamin, the methylcobalamin form. Some of the disorders that may be preventable or treatable with this natural vitamin therapy include chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson's disease, peripheral neuropathies and Alzheimer's disease. (Neuropathy causes, Preventing 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)
