Is jogging good for small fiber neuropathy

I was diagnosed 4 mo ago with small fiber neuropathy but have had burning feet for over a year. I am an 81 yr old x-competitive runner but am now doing 4-5 miles daily on an inclined treadmill. My UMich neurologist said to keep doing it as long as possible. He also said to continue resistance training as it is crucial to maintaining muscle mass. I believe my morning workout is crucial for my physical and mental health. I eat healthy but resisting sugar is a big challenge for me.

@cinbo – I think that many of us are challenged to resist sugar. It's hard.

That is quite amazing you can run 4-5 miles daily on an inclined treadmill while having burning feet sensations from your small fiber neuropathy. How are you able to do that without pain? Are you lifting free weights, or doing weight machines?
