It is very difficult or impossible to me to listen to your newsletters or play your videos.
My old PC is very, very slow.
Your Info. can be extremely helpful to me. I am very sad I cannot use it.
May you, please, do it in writing as many people does it in the Internet?
Thanks so much for your concern at this matter.
Sincerely, Marielle A

to lean forward and strain to hear it. Louder was much better. Thanks!

Dr. Joe - What about the placebo-controlled trials continuing at Wayne State Univ. indicating that acetyl-L-carnitine improves pain, nerve regeneration and vibratory perception in subjects with chronic diabetic neuropathy? Ref: Diabetes Care 28:89-94, 2005 and statistical update with pathology reports in 2008?

Hi,
Thanks for all your help. I had gastric bypass surgery 4 months ago and although I've lost 45 lbs. so far, my neuropathy has taken a dramatic turn for the worse. What can I do for this--I thought as the glucose came down, I would my other symptoms would improve. Help!

Benfotiamine has been known to have been useful for this type of neuropathy. 300 mg twice a day.

You must use Vitamin D3 with it and this is why I developed the oral spray. 8 sprays a day gives you 5,000 IU daily.

I'm curious about your insights relating to argine impact to diab neuropathy as well as general path it has toward nerve regeneration. women I guide (APOPS, I'm a pelvic organ prolapse health advocate)often have damage related to nerve crush during 2nd stage labor; trying to find a path to supplementation to help with this. Also I advise women who have diabetes to know they have additional impact of neuropathy, diabetes impacts so many other health issues.
Thanks for any insights you can share!

ProArgi9 plus is a product, not just raw l-arginine, that is the mainstay for neuropathy treatment. Benfotiamine in large amounts is important too. Methylcobalamin is the last but very important product that we include.

What about a co-diagnosis of schizophrenia, w/ treatment with zyprexa? The neuropathy came before the zyprexa, and I have yet to be diagnosed with diabetes. First I had cold hands, then the tingling went to my head, then the schizoprhenia, then numb hands in the morning, now numb feet. I thought perhaps norvasc/bystolic caused the foot problem, but now I'm not to sure. Nerve conductivity studies in my hands came back normal.

It is hard to know what is going on except for the fact that all the neurologic system is connected. Why the sequence I do not know.
