idiopathic neuropathy and sugar, not a diabetic

Posted by @tdemaria, Dec 11, 2018

I get neuropathy when I eat. Most thing cause some but sweets cause my feet to go numb, burn and pin and needles. I have been tested many time for diabeties and they say I am not even close. Could this be vasculitus or some RA disease causing the issue. I feelmthe best innthe mornings with little or now neuropathy. As the day goes on and depending on my diet i get inflamed. I do have a bulging disc in my back pressing on nerves but why the sugar would make that so much worse. My Dr is stumped and have no other options for me. I would like to monitor my sugar level continously for a few weeks to see how high I am getting. Can it be insulin intolerance?

@tdemaria Another patient here was talking about sugar increasing his pain and neuropathy and he had gout. When I looked that up, a lot of foods including sugar triggers that type of inflammation. You can do an elimination diet and figure out what foods are your triggers. Here is some information on gout. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/gout/symptoms-causes/syc-20372897

I have found that sugar increased my pain, so now I am sugar free. Gluten increases pain as well. I detoxed from sugar, gluten and dairy and feel so much better. Pain decreased substantially.
