Neuropathy or Nerve damage

Nerve Damage (Neuropathy)

According to the Accuchek web site

"Neuropathy" is a broad word like "animal." It includes a wide range of subcategories that can look as different from one another as a cat and an elephant. Neuropathy, after all, simply means "nerve disease." Because nerves carry all the information about physical sensation and motor instruction between the brain and every part of the body, nerve damage can affect you from your teeth to your toes.

For one person it can mean numbness in the toes, while another person will simply feel "full" sooner than they should. That's why it's smart to have a good idea of the feelings and symptoms associated with nerve damage. Armed with the right information, you can be on guard against neuropathy and take steps to protect yourself.

What exactly is Neuropathy?

Harmful Diabetes Medications

Alanna Ritchie of www.drugwatch.com has provided this article.


Type 2 diabetes medications can prevent dangerous blood sugar levels, but can also be harmful in and of themselves. When starting a new medication, you should be aware of the possible side effects and what those side effects may indicate. 

Nearly every diabetes medication comes with minor side effects, including nausea, vomiting, gas, diarrhea, cold-like symptoms and weight gain. These will typically lessen over time.

There are some diabetes drugs, however, that come with severe side effects, including hypoglycemia, bladder cancer, lactic acidosis, acute pancreatitis and cardiac problems. Many complications can be avoided if you know what to look for.

Hypoglycemia can be caused by sulfonylureas, which work to control blood sugar by…

Total Pancreatectomy and Islet Cell Transplant.

Hi ,
I would love to hear if anyone else has under gone a total pancreatectomy and or an islet cell transplant ?

I had mine in June 2005 - it took 12 hours of surgery and 3 subsequent operations to date.

Becoming diabetic was a forgone conclusion of the surgery obviously and NO I was not an alcoholic as most people ( including medical professionals ) seem to think. I was born with a rare pancreatatic abnormality, so chronic pancreatitus has been a constant problem from birth.

It would be good to know if any one else has had the same or similar please. Thanks Debbie

Kosher Diet for Diabetics Gets Real Results

Hello Everyone, 


My name is Christopher and i have been a diabetic ever since I was 7 years old (I am 31 now).  I got diabetes from contracting the chicken pox and it attacked my pancreas.  Through the next 23 years, I have had huge issues with drastic ups and downs in my blood sugar.  There were many times I would wake up in the middle of the night in cold sweats, there were times someone would have to call the paramedics to get me out of an unresponsive state.  Doctors tried readjusting my insulin, they tried different kinds of insulin and for 23 years nothing seemed to work. 

In October of 2010 I became a Nazarene believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and started keeping Torah, I was a Christian before that and thought I could eat anything that is within my diabetic guidelines to eat, pork, shrimp, shellfish etc.  And I loved pork, I used to wake up in the morning and have a sausage biscuit, I would make spaghetti sauce with tons of pork in it, my favorite food was…
