My husband is looking for a natural treatment for diabetic nerve pain.
He has pain and burning in the legs which sometimes can get to such a level that it is debilitating. He been diagnosed with diabetes but according to an ultrasound his blood circulation is within a normal range. One doctor said it was general diabetic nerve pain but didn’t offer a treatment.
Does anyone know what would trigger it? Would it be diet related, i.e. too much sugar short term triggering the pain, or is it a cumulative effect i.e. high sugar levels over the long term? He admitted to me that when he gets stressed at work he sometimes eats a complete bag of jelly beans. His blood sugar levels do rise in spikes and his A1C is generally good – 5.5 to 5.9.
He’s on Glucophage and blood pressure medications. Is there a natural avenue he could explore to manage this situation? More specifically something target, a natural treatment for diabetic nerve pain.
