Diabetic neuropathy is a difficult disease to treat. Over the years I have
used lots of remedies with varianble success. Generally i have found
vitamins useless and neurontin usually useless. I was a neurologist at one
time and used lots of neurontin for pain control. I use Alpha Lipoic Acid
for myself in huge doses of 900 mg a day. I also use Gamma Linoleic acid
daily. niether of these need a prescription. If you use Alpha Lipoic Acid,
you may need to take a 20 mg pepcid tablet to cut down on stomach burning.
Another thing to try are magnetic insoles for your shoes. If you have had
ulcers check with your doctor first.
