Supporting Good Health and Nutrition With Supplements
Beyond OTC Meds for Neuropathy Pain relief
Evidentiary studies show that when someone is diagnosed with Type II, adult onset diabetes he or she is more than likely to also have symptoms of neuropathy. Type II diabetes usually follows a condition physicians refer to as, pre-diabetes. If treated early on, it can be reversed to prevent full-blown diabetes. Proper nutritional support, along with diet and exercise are three keys to helping prevent diabetes and alleviating the effects of neuropathy.
In pre-diabetes fasting blood sugars stay above 100 mg/dl. This, of course, is blood sugar testing done in the doctor’s office. Usually, there are symptoms, which are problematic enough to schedule an appointment. The doctor will also conduct an A1C check, a laboratory analysis of blood glucose ranges, over a three-month period. Pre-diabetes is when the individual’s A1C range is between the mg/dl 5.7 and 6.4 percentages. VasoCorp has a complete product line called, “NeuroAWAY,” which provides pre-diabetic nutritional supplementation and helps with pain relief caused by nerve damage.
Diabetic Neuropathy, beyond tingling hands
Diabetic neuropathy has multiple symptoms, these may include numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. On the minor end of the scale, the person may feel slight discomfort, which doesn’t improve. Beyond the tingling hands, there comes a point where the pre-diabetes causes a disruption in the metabolic balance. A balance which hinges on inefficient handling of glucose/insulin. Doctors also may identify what’s thought to be the beginnings of insulin resistance, with glucose being stored in the liver, instead of burning it for energy.
In the hands, diabetic neuropathy can feel very much like carpal tunnel syndrome. NeuroAWAY products include topical relief and supplements. Simply think of neuropathy as a process that causes nerve damage when blood glucose (blood sugar) levels become too high. Pre-D provides nutrients critical to blood sugar regulation.
The nerve damage from diabetic neuropathy cannot be corrected with surgery. Unless, more testing from a qualified neurologist reveals an alternate cause, such as carpal tunnel. Even with effective blood sugar control, after diagnosis, neuropathy is a condition that still lingers.
Numbers Going Up
Back in the year 2004, diabetes didn’t have the societal impact it does today. Then, it was estimated that only 40 to 45 percent of people over the age of 65, were at risk of developing a chronic metabolic disorder. What’s going on nowadays is that number has significantly increased. Now, according to a 2017 report released by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are over 100 million individuals in the US with pre-diabetes/diabetes. These numbers could lead to more people suffering from neuropathy than previously thought.
The results of the studies leave people suffering from pre-diabetes in control of their destiny. If they choose to make healthier choices they could lessen the effects of high glucose. The wisest path for delaying diabetes or avoiding it altogether is making dietary changes to prevent damaged nerve cells.
Studies Help with Neuropathy Pain
If you search online, it’s possible to locate several local research studies focused on neuropathy. Until there is a treatment protocol with a medication/medications which completely cures the condition, most are stuck with debilitating numbness and tingling in the hands and feet that becomes worse at night. The above-mentioned VasoCorp product line works with a proprietary blend of amino acids and vitamins. Which when combined with the topical formula, may enhance nutrient delivery and offer pain relief from the ill effects of neuropathy.
