I’ve had Idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathy in my lower extremities for about 14 years now. I am 53 years old. Been to Dr. after Dr. with no results. All kinds of therapy, pills, creams, vitamins, etc. Have found nothing to help. I’m taking Alpha Lipoic Acid 600 mg a day to keep it from getting worse. It gets very painful in the evenings and at night. I do take pain meds and they help about 50%. I’ve done everything possible to not resort to pain meds. I have noticed that a low-sugar diet helps. I ran into a friend of mine the other day that has it also. She said she has cut meat and sugar out of her diet and she has been able to cut her pain meds out. I sure wish I had all of the money I have spent on trying to get relief!
