Being new to all of this, I have a question. Is neuropathy reversible? If you have the tingling, numbness, etc. in your feet and you take control of your BG and bring it down to "normal" levels, is it possible the neuropathy could diminish or disappear? Thanks to all for their care and wonderful advice.

I developed neuropathy, not from 40 years of diabetes, but from having undiagnosed celiac diseaese. But the effect was the same. My nerves were being starved of nutrients due not to poor circulation but to lack of nutrients in my blood. I thought the damage was from diabetes and started taking the vitamin regime I found in a book, "Reversing Diabetes" by dr. Julian Whitaker. It worked! After 6 months of the vitamins my shooting pains disappeared, and stayed away for another year. At that point the celiac was diagnosed, I quit eating anything with wheat, rye or barley gluten in it, and all's been well since. But I am a believer in concentrated vitamin doses now. The book is only $14 on both Amazon and on this site. Well worth it. Tons of useful info on medication side-effects, livable dietary changes, and many other things your doctor will never know to tell you.

I know people who have had their neuropathy reversed. One was in a wheelchair it was so bad. They all take the same nutritional supplements I take. I have been diabetic for almost 25 years. Thank God I never felt any issues with neuropathy but I don't really know if there was something going on. The one nerve I know I had a problem with was because of a femoral nerve block from my last knee surgery. A few weeks after I started taking these nutritional supplements, there was one day that I felt a few of the nerves in my legs especially the one I had issues with kept firing. It felt like they were sending a signal to the nerves they connect with that they were alive and well again. I wish I could describe it better than that but I can't. That same day I felt a nerve across my back do the same thing. The one across my back happen just once and it was a more intense feeling but it was in the same area where I had a problem years ago that a chiropractor fixed.

Good luck and God Bless,

I don't mind you asking. I take Reliv products. You may have never heard of it before because I know I never heard of it until a few months ago.

Depending on the level of damage done to the nerves and their endings, the pain can diminish and the body, thru it's natural process of repair may be able to undo some of the damage, but that is not guaranteed.

It takes years to develope nueropathy to the point of tingling, or numbness in the feet and toes, this can also happen to the hands and fingers, but you must understand that neuropathy also affects your internal organs including your heart, kidneys and liver, so managing your glucose level is very important.
