Prefer the Orthomolecular Medicine approach and always look for solutions with supplements. It reversed neuropathy for me over 10 years ago and recently my low red blood cells have returned to what they had been before the 2002 disaster. So as I repeatedly find that supplements work, no one will shake my conviction.

I watched the video. Thanks a lot. It was interesting but I don't eat white flour. I'm sure she has LOTS to say on other topics too.

What supplements do you take? I take calcium and vitamin D3 and magnesium and vitamin B6. My last c-peptide test was 6 years ago and I was 0.2ug/ml Should be 0.51 a 2.72 ug/ml so not much there. I'm turning 66 in a couple of months and this year I have really felt some aging process going on. Fortunately though I'm still very active and can run after my granddaughter who is 1. I walk with my dog everyday. I have good results when I am just with my husband and eat real low carb but we often have lots of friends, children and grandchildren at our big house in the country. Even if I eat few carbs the ratio is no longer good and I have high numbers a lot. What are your interests?

Hello! Thank you for being my friend. I don't know exactly what you mean by Europeans being more enlightened! I suppose they accept more alternative medicine than in the US but did you see the other day the live interview with a naturopath ND? I see that you have used lots of vitamins and other supplements to reverse your neuropathy. That's great! Fortunately for me I have no complications for the moment and I take a usual amount of insulin (from 16 to 25 units in my pump) which seems normal. Do you also have a special diet? I don't know the author you mentioned in your post. I will look her up. How much insulin do you take?

I do eat meat, but not very much...less than what I used to. I also take various oral supplements, none of which irritate my stomach. D, B Complex, Iron, E, Taurine, Krill. What neuropathy symptoms were you experiencing that were solved with the B injections over 8 months? Which 6 B vitamins were they specifically?

I think anemia is not considered a serious problem. But if you're trying to live with it, IT IS! In Canada, do you have a minimum hemoglobin count in order to receive Procrit? The FDA did a number on us in the U.S.

Janina I am the same guy. I just changed my picture a few years ago. But yes, I did start dinner and a movie and I did become part of the care team. After I graduated this past year I decided to restart the dinner and a movie group, and I took a little more active role here on TUD.

Thank you for asking.

Hi Janine! Thank You for adding me as your friend! I am very interested in finding out what supplements you used to reverse your anemia. I feel so tired and sluggish with the anemia and need help! It is so nice to have a fellow diabetic be a friend. :)
