My husband has diabetes and he’s been experiencing pain and burning in his legs. The pain is debilitating at times. He’s told his doctor, but the ultrasound shows that his circulation is in the normal range.
Would too much sugar in his diet trigger the pain, or is this a cumulative effect of too much sugar too long? (He just told me he’s been eating bags of jelly beans at work when he gets stressed. It’s not enough that his blood sugar levels are spiking and his A1C’s are good – 5.6 to 5.9.)
Is there anything natural he could do to deal with this? I know there are drugs, but the side-effects are pretty scary. He currently takes Glucophage and blood pressure meds.
