Is there a natural treatment for diabetic nerve pain?

To avoid side effects of drugs many have tried a natural treatment for diabetic nerve pain.

Chantelle A asked:

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.

Diabetic Weight Loss?

ncbound asked:

I have been a diabetic for 33 years now. I am very healthy and with no problems yet! My a1c is 6.1 and steady! Since I turned 40 my weight has become an issue. I exercise 4 times a week. My diet is great.  My doctor states that this is a side effect from taking insulin for 30+ years. I refuse to hear this. Are there any diabetics out there, 40+ who have any weight loss success stories that will help me? Your help is GREATLY appreciated!

Diabetic to Non-Diabetic?

souldoctor asked:

I was diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic in July 2004 with an A1C of 8.1%. Since then I have been very mindful of diet, exercise, and weight loss, and my A1C’s have fluctuated within the 6%’s. I do not take any medication or insulin for control. Much to my joy, my last A1C was 5.9%! I understand this number to be technically within the non-diabetic range, and if my glucose readings over the past 90 days are any indication, I fully expect my A1C to drop even lower. Is it possible I could become a non-diabetic, or am I simply a diabetic under great control?
