@helennicola, @catro I also only eat a few carbs, no alcohol, and no caffeine. It seems to help each day for my neuropathy. Perhaps the carbs cause less blood circulation briefly because of the neuropathy although I am not a diabetic. Limiting my carb intake to 100 grams or less per day seems to be very helpful for me. My 90 yo mother does the same and it helps her have less pain with her neuropathy. About 3 years ago she was diagnosed with diabetes but the neuropathy she had many years before. Her diabetes is very well managed with food and diet. She takes no oral medications or subcutaneous injections of insulin. Every 3 months her PCP orders a hemoglobin A1C with positive results for her blood sugar. Keep trying to avoid or eliminate certain foods from your diet to see what works best for you. Hope this helps. Wish you well.
