Neurontin may be prescribed for diabetic neuropathy.
Contrary to the authors’ claims, gabapentin (Neurontin) at doses up to 3,600 mg per day is not more effective than placebo in treating diabetic peripheral neuropathic pain.
How long does gabapentin take to treat diabetic neuropathy?
How fast does gabapentin begin to work? According to studies, pain alleviation may begin within a week and reach its greatest efficacy within four weeks. This is because gabapentin is often begun at a low dosage and progressively raised until it is effective.
Helpful three-part strategy for a low-fat, plant-based, whole-food diet that treats and avoids Prediabetes/Diabetes II (also cures/prevents high blood pressure and high cholesterol). Very comprehensive description of insulin resistance and its treatment.
I’m pleased the book gave solid facts and information on why a low-carb, high-fat diet is not sustainable.
Diet works if you adhere to it, as simple as that. It is simple to sustain this diet long-term.
How is Neurontin prescribed?
Gabapentin is used in conjunction with other drugs to prevent and manage seizures. In adults, it is also used to treat nerve discomfort after shingles (a painful rash caused by herpes zoster infection). Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant and antiepileptic medication.
How does diabetic nerve pain manifest?
Tingling or scorching sensation. Sharp aches and cramps. musculoskeletal weakness Extreme sensitivity to touch; for some, even the weight of a bedsheet is excruciating.
How long can neuropathy be tolerated?
Several significant variables influence the prognosis of a patient with familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP), although the majority of those diagnosed with the uncommon, hereditary, progressive illness have a life expectancy of around 10 years.
This is the finest diabetic book that I have ever read. The excellent ones all recommend a high-carbohydrate, low-fat, plant-based diet, but this one explains why we should follow this diet. I have been a whole-food, plant-based eater for around five years, but I ate too many nuts, nut butters, and seeds despite the fact that they are entire foods.
As soon as I read the explanation in this book, I saw why too much fat was harmful. My insulin consumption went from 30 units per day to 12 units per day, and it seems to be moving even lower, and my blood sugar management has improved to the point that it is almost predictable, while on a high-fat diet, my blood sugar was like a random walk.
I adore this book! BTW, except when I’m fasting, I’m never hungry. Intermittent fasting is not required, but it does help you lose weight and activate your cellular defenses. Eating according to the advice in this book will help mend your metabolic disease, and you will lose weight. Good luck!!!!
