Has anyone experienced this and if so has your doctor formally diagnosed you? Have you been prescribed any medication or…taken any natural alternatives? And anyone ever hear of or take Neuropathy Support Formula? I recently googled Neuropathy and found an e-book which I read to gain more information on this since I mentioned to my pcp just the other day about this condition, I got no response from her btw :(, but I do have an upcoming appt with a different dr. tuesday and will mention it to him and again with another health professional next week. I would like to strongly suggest reading this book to all diabetics because it does concern us although it can be caused by other health problems-we are top on the list.

I am on gabapentin and its been helping and i also was treated with cymbalta for my nerves and deppression. Any dual use med is a great thing to try

thank you all for your replies, Jayabee would you mind going to … and reading the e-book? when you have time? I would really like your input/opinion, because after I read it, so much of it made sense to me. I still have to talk to a couple of doctors but my pcp added b12 shots to my meds a couple of months ago, 1mcg per week for 4 weeks and then 1 same a month. I have noticed a slight difference but I'm only just past my first 4 weeks and still having trouble getting my bg stabilized :(. It would help tremendously if I had a regular schedule…a job…(I can't work) something to keep me active…I can't do much exercise (back trouble) so I'm kind of in a slump and not the greatest shape. I give myself the b12 shot since I do my insuliin-the b12 really HURTS since it's in the muscle but she says it most effective there. I've been working really hard on my bg and I'm down to 6.3, yaay, but to keep it on an even keel is proving very challenging…no pasta, bread etc mostly veggies and a little meat just need to move it before I lose it :). Thanks again!

Congratulations on your lowering of your A1c to 6.3 (i am taking for granted that is what you are telling me)

I have downloaded the PDF file and have started to read it, but it is late for me and I need to go to bed —- long day. Will be back with what I think maybe as early as tomorrow.

at you leisure :), no hurry, I found it interesting and informative about something I knew nothing about (apparently my pcp knew very little) just when you get around to it is fine, thanks :)

I've read the article and it is a slightly new approach from folks of which I've been aware for about 6 to 8 months. Their information seems very solid, but slightly inconsistent. I quote their publication: "Reversing neuropathy is a goal of medical professionals that have made it their career goal to help individuals diagnosed with neuropathy. Neuropathy has no known cure and in most cases
once the damage to the nerve cells has been done there is no reversing the nerve damage."
"However, research and clinical studies have shown how neuropathic treatment can help reduce nerve pain and in some cases eliminate nerve pain forever!" p 7

And they just happen to have the formula to eliminate the pain.

I had been getting emails from these folks for a while now, offering different 'deals" on the formula. I hadn't responded to any of them since there seemed to be a "hook" in every "deal". I am very wary of getting on the hook and having difficulty getting off again. Many of the deals seemed very good but those which seemed good I would have to commit to a long term auto-ship program. I didn't want to find out that it did not work and then be on the hook for automatic shipments and debits on my cards.

Otherwise the single bottles of the product were very expensive, and according to their suggestions it would take over 1 month to get potential results, if any.

From what I have read online many of the ingredients of the formula are touted to be at least a partial solution to the burning pain. I have tried several of the vitamin based substances (ALA, Biotin, Benfotamine) and seemed to get a little relief from the pain. The other herbal ingredients, I have no experience with them.

I may go ahead and pay the more expensive cost of the formula for a few months just to check it out and see if it might work for me. If it works for me, then I could get into the auto-ship deals with fewer qualms.

Since we are each unique in our diabetes, what may work for you may not for me and vice-versa.

I pray this review has been helpful to you. Should you have more specific questions, please ask, perhaps I might be able to focus on that question in detail.

Since I have ADHD, specific questions to focus my mind are quite helpful to me.

thanks for taking the trouble to read it :), I know it's time you will never get back, lol, mostly I just wanted your opinion on what they said about neuropathy itself. I finally got to see one of my dr.s today but he didn't really go into any definitions :(, I also saw a diabetic nurse today and she suggested I get a referral to see a neurologist to explore problems I'm having with my hands, arms etc. I'm suspecting the problems I'm having with my hands, etc. may be neuropathy but haven't been officially diagnosed, I dread having to go through the tests they do on the nerves to gauge nerve problems, been there done that on my hands, hated it.

Howdy Debbie

Yes, I have Diabetes related neuropathy. I have the feeling of burning from my knees through my toes. I have tingling neuropathy from my elbows to fingertips. I have been officially Dx'd for about 6 or 7 yrs. I had been given by an Rx of Gabepentin, which made no difference in my burning neuro. I had then been given a Rx of nortrypteline (an antidepressant) which did nothing for my pain. I stopped the med. I have tried Alpha Lipolic Acid, Biotin, and Benfotamine (synthetic B 1 Vitamin) I have experienced a small measure of relief, but not total relief.

Unlike Joyce below I have not experienced the cessation of symptoms even though I had normalized Blood Glucose numbers.

Yes I have it and it was diagnosed by my doctor. I was not given medication. My doctor told me it could be corrected with managing my blood sugar. He was correct. Once I got my blood sugar under control it went away. I only have it when my blood sugar gets high which is rare.

This worked for me. Diabetes is not a one size fits all. What worked for me might not work for you or anyone else. Because it was better when I wore really good Tennis Shoes, he gave me a letter for work. Turned out great for me.
