Cure Diabetes Naturally, Don't Just Treat It With Drugs

Home > Diabetes Pain Treatment

Diabetes Paint Treatment with standard pain relief medications such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and acetaminophen, may be helpful, but they probably will not provide adequate pain relief. Narcotics may be necessary. And "pain blockers" are an alternative. But there are natural methods to consider.

Long term elevated blood sugar levels will produce diabetic neuropathy, a nervous system disorder associated with diabetes that can develop in the hands, feet, and legs, that can tingle, itch, or be very painful for months or years. People can also lose sensation in those areas, which can give rise to ulcers and other complications due to trauma that goes unnoticed.

Alternative Diabetes Pain Treatment

A nutritional supplement,  acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC), appears to be effective in reducing pain and improving nerve function.   A study, reported in Diabetes Care (2005;28:89–94), showed that in subjects taking 500 mg or 1000 mg of ACL three times a day, the number of nerve fibers and clusters of regenerating nerves were significantly greater than those taking a placebo, and many experienced significantly reduced pain. This study suggest that ALC may help heal damaged nerves and form new nerve fibers in people with diabetic neuropathy, relieving symptoms and decreasing the risk of additional complications.

Conventional Pain Treatment

This site promotes alternative medicine natural approaches to cure diabetes, which is caused by consumption of toxic engineered fats and oils, and cured by using natural ones. For reference, conventional pain treatments are described.

A pain blocker is not a pain killer. Originally developed for other diseases, they have occasionally been found to be effective for diabetes pain. These include antidepressant medications such as Elavil (amitriptyline), Prozac (fluoxetine), and others. There are anti-seizure medicines that include  Tegretol (carbamazepine), Dilantin (phenytoin), and Neurontin (gabapentin).

One problem with pain relievers is the effective ones have unpleasant side effects.

The FDA has approved Cymbalta the first and only FDA-approved drug to treat diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain that affects nearly 5 million people in the U.S. It is a complication of diabetes due to nerve damage thought to be due to high blood sugar levels; it may cause stabbing, burning, or shooting pain. Cymbalta does not treat the underlying nerve damage, but only eases the pain.
