Latest Diabetes Treatment Reviews

Gabapentin


Gabapentin does not really work
 

Pros: When I take them in the morning with my pain pills, they work for about two hours. Same thing after my afternoon and night pill.

Cons: I've been up today since 5:30 and they are not working at all. While getting a casserole ready for a brunch with the ladies, I could hardly stand that how much pain (I use pain since I really can not explain how they feel) I was in.

Overall: I have been on Gabapentin for over 5 yrs. Started at 300 mg 2X a day. then about two years later up to 3X a day. About six months later the changed to 600 mg 3X a day. Last fall I was changed to 800 mg 3X a day. When the Dr. does her feel test, maybe once out of four tries I feel her touching my feet. Any other time I feel nothing except pain, pins and needles in my legs and feet and swelling and burning of my feet. The Dr. told me she is considering changing my meds or sending me to see a specialist. With out my other pain medications I'm barely holding it together.

Cinnamon


Its good and bad for Type One Diabetic's
 

Pros: Helps lower your Blood Sugar when they are High but

Cons: Can keep your Blood Sugar to Low being a Type One Diabetic.

Overall: Each person is different. But being a Type One Diabetic for 32 year's now. When I took it on a daily basis it kept lowering my blood sugars too much. And had to stop taking it all together.
