Neuropathy Is A Diabetic Must Know All About.
| You Either Likely Have It Or In The Works If Blood Sugar Not Controlled.|
Neuropathy is considered Incurable in the medical word and comes along with many ailments, diabetes by far the leading contributor.
Nobody wants to hear the words peripheral neuropathy, a condition that, for most, begins with numbness in toes (sometimes fingers) and when happens in non diabetics sometimes takes years to diagnose.
According to the Neuropathy Association, the condition is the most common of diseases many people have never heard of � yet, upwards of 20 million Americans have it.
Neuropathy is caused by damage to the body�s peripheral nerves. This is nerve damage that disrupts the body�s ability to communicate with its muscles, skin, joints or internal organs. This is like the body�s wiring system having a failure or breaking down.
There is a wide array of peripheral neuropathy symptoms. Diabetes being by far the leading cause. The symptoms can vary, somewhat, depending on which highly specialized peripheral nerve is damaged. The symptom are usually numbness, or pain in the toes etc that feel like an electric shock, with others describing the sensations as tingling and prickling sensations, sensitivity to touch, a feeling like being covered with dried paint, or even muscle weakness. If often progresses from toes up to part of your legs, which also eventually become numb.
Neuropathy is common in diabetes, with some saying 40 to 60% have some symptoms develop and is considered part of and often the only early warning of diabetes. Many diabetics walk with a cane because they have not lost control of their feet, but have lost the feeling of the sidewalk etc so any obstruction is undetected by feelings in the feet, so a cane can help "catch" you from falling from failure to detect.....
Sensory nerves for many who have not arrested their high blood sugar and the problem progressively deteriorates.This is all caused by lack of adequate blood supply to the nerves, due to thickening of the blood from high blood sugar.
The major concern for most is falling. Some take balance classes that help you develop a more sophisticated automatic balance, and lowers the fall rate.
In addition to falling, one of the leading causes of death and handicap, status of totally disabled is the inability to heal the lower extremities for the same reason, that the nerves die.
The thicken blood does not make it thru the fine lower extremity veins and cells do not receive the required nourishment to heal themselves.Thus it is extremely important for a diabetic who can no longer feel his feet etc normally, to take extreme care and carefully regular inspect feet for accidental damage constantly.
Do no removing any skin, calluses or anything at all except via medical supervision. Once damage and infection occurs gangrene often results and goes with this inability to heal wounds.
This inability of a diabetic to heal lower extremities, and resulting gangrene etc often results in amputation as the only option.
Now your authors personal experience and recommendation that may work for you.First of all I am quite active for my age and get in situations where I have accidents.
One was a burn just below my waist. Previously had taken months to heal banging up my shins etc but the hip burn just would not heal no matter what I tried.
After months of everything not working I decided to try taking internally, pygogenol, the French maritime bark supplement, that I had used previously and knew about.
My experience with it was that in 30 days it healed completely. Pygogenol is expensive as supplements go but often works where nothing else does. It is also effective in lowering your blood sugar. See our stories on the substance elsewhere.
I have since taken it with a serious toe injury which is another story...again with great success. Lets just say if I am in any jeopardy from diabetes, I immediately bring out the pygogenol. The French company has paid for a constant stream of studies on its use and have yet to see one where the substance did not do as well or better then any other substance.
Now understand, my developing tragedy of diabetes was I had lost most feeling in my feet when diagnosed. I could no longer tell whether I had my foot on the gas or the brake etc or anywhere at all.
Needless to say this was very upsetting to me, and was bitter about this diabetic symptom essentially ending my active life as I knew it.
Everybody and everything say that neuropathy is irreversible, no cure, you only get worse.
Then I read about studies showing that there were 80% "improvement" success rates using a light treatment, main supplier called Anodyne.
This consists of a boot containing near infrared LED developed by NASA for growing plants in space. Many dozen lights exposing your feet for 30 minutes.
Now accepted by Medicare and paying up to $2200 for a series of light treatments.
Researched that and with electrical engineer son figured out the frequency of light in those LED were also available from the sun for free. So I worked out a test of exposing my feet to the sun, including bottoms...for 30 minutes, and in 3 days had much of my feeling in my feet recovering..
Continued for a week and recovered what i considered...."good enough". You can still stick a sharp pencil in the bottom of my foot and i can not tell it.....but i can feel plenty good enough for normal use....do I hardly now notice any impairment. after a year they started going bad again so did another 3 days...and that was six months ago.
Now you have to understand i live in Az much of the time....so my sun is likely better then your sun......
My feet are still a little irritated but operate basically normal so i no longer notice i have feet whereas before was like carrying around a problem........
So you can try my system or try Anodyne treatment or let them get worse... You will also need to do some other things like take El Arginine supplements etc.
The name of the game is getting NO, Nitrous Oxide to your cells....and that�s what happens with Viagra...it opens up your plumbing for blood flow...... Sunshine does that ....in your feet.... don�t knock it....it works... sorry it is too simple for you to believe and I am sure if you pay a couple thousand for it...you would be more impressed.
Anyway, if you do not give it a try, I will not feel sorry for your continuing worsening neuropathy. Feel free to contact and ask me if have any questions...
