Bladder Neuropathy - Neurogenic Bladder
Three different types of nerves control how your bladder functions. Damage to any of these nerves can cause problems with the way the bladder functions. This type of problem is often called bladder neuropathy, bladder dysfunction, or neurogenic bladder. (Autonomic Neuropathy,  Diabetic Complications)

Peripheral Neuropathy Explained
Perhaps because it's poorly understood and not commonly discussed, peripheral neuropathy is sometimes called the "silent disease".  Yet it affects more people than rheumatoid arthritis-a much better known ailment-with just as severe consequences in its worst form. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Education)

A Natural Approach to Diabetes
Many diabetics have low blood levels of B6. Levels are even lower in diabetics with nerve damage. Supplementation with Vitamins B6 and B12, including a form of B12 called methylcobalamin, play an important role in the prevention and treatment of many forms of diabetic neuropathy. (Diabetes Nutrition, Polyneuropathy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate)

Natural Cures for Painful Neuropathy
 Peripheral neuropathy may be one of the most common conditions you’ve never heard of. Estimates are that it affects as many as two-thirds of people with diabetes, 10% to 20% of people with cancer and 8% of all people over age 55. Symptoms include burning and tingling sensations, numbness, and occasional sharp, sudden pains similar to electrical shocks. Intensity of symptoms varies widely, from mild annoyance... to numbness severe enough to impair function... to debilitating pain.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid Improves Neuropathy Symptoms
In people with diabetes, alpha-lipoic acid appears to enhance insulin action and blood vessel circulation, protect against diabetic neuropathy (nerve disease), and inhibit protein glycation (a reaction between excess glucose and protein that impairs the protein's function and forms harmful end products in the body). (Diabetic Neuropathy, Alpha-Lipoic Acid)

Diabetic Complications
Persistently high blood sugar levels can lead to long-term complications such as accelerated development of cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, cardiovascular disease, diabetic neuropathy, nephropathy and foot problems. Diabetes education on how to recognize signs and symptoms. Details diabetes symptoms of eye problems, nephropathy, cardiovascular disease, neuropathy and foot ailments.

ADA Survey Finds Lack of Neuropathy Awareness
A new national survey commissioned by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) reveals that, while the majority of people with diabetes experience symptoms associated with diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage) -- only a small minority have been diagnosed with this condition. And, a staggering 56% of patients have never even heard of diabetic neuropathy. (neuropathy symptoms, diabetes care, diabetes statistics)

Alpha Lipoic Acid Reverses Nerve Damage In Diabetics
Nerve damage is one of diabetes' most devastating complications and affects more than 50 percent of all diabetics. Its typical course is relentlessly downhill and there are no effective medicines to treat it. But now there is hope. A study recently published in Diabetes Care reports that the antioxidant nutrient alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) can partly restore diabetic nerve function. (Diabetic Neuropathy, Diabetic Complications)

Benfotiamine
Benfotiamine is a specialized form of Vitamin B1 and has been recognized for its usefulness for those with neuropathy. There are implications that benfotiamine is more beneficial in dealing with peripheral neuropathy than other forms of B1. A number of studies, in fact, have borne this out. (diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nutrition, neuropathy treatment, benfotamine)

Complications: An Introduction
Diabetes is a complicated disease--complicated to understand, complicated to treat. There are steps you can take to reduce your chances of developing complications, such as keeping your blood glucose and cholesterol levels in a healthy range.(retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, diabetes management)

Coping With Nerve Pain - B Vitamin Relief
When you lack B vitamins, you may suffer pain in your hands or feet, signs of what's called peripheral neuropathy. The good news: B supplements can help your nerves calm down and stop screaming with pain. About 15 million Americans suffer from neuropathy, a nerve problem that can damage the nervous system and cause unrelenting aches and pains. In particular, people suffering from diabetes may suffer peripheral neuropathy when the sugar in their blood reaches and remains at dangerous levels. (Neuropathy and Diabetes Management)

Acetyl-L-Carnitine May Be Important for Nerve Health in Diabetic Patients
Recent research studies indicate that Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALC) may improve pain and nerve regeneration in patients with chronic diabetic neuropathy. These studies demonstrate that ALC treatment is effective in alleviating symptoms, particularly pain, and improves nerve fiber regeneration. (Neuropathy Symptoms, Neuropathy Product, Diabetic Nutrition)

Alpha-Lipoic Acid: Extra Help Taming Diabetes
Researchers have discovered that the potent antioxidant, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, may be an effective treatment for a common complication of diabetes, known as diabetic neuropathy, which develops when high blood sugar levels damage delicate nerve endings. It may also help control blood sugar in diabetics, possibly by lowering insulin levels and increasing the transport of sugar into cells. (Diabetic Nutrition, Diabetic Product, Diabetic Neuropathy)

Diabetic Neuropathy: What Can I Do About It?
People who don't control (or can't control) their blood sugar very well seem more likely to get diabetic neuropathy. Symptoms can include numbness in your feet and toes, pain in your legs, a feeling of lightheadedness that causes you to fall, diarrhea and constipation and failure to get erections (in men).

Hard To Digest
Diabetes related nerve damage can cause mild to severe digestive problems. Neuropathy most commonly affects the arms and legs, but for around half of those who have diabetes, the digestive system is the affected area. Signs, symptoms and dietary solutions are discussed.
