Eating More Frequently May Manage Neuropathy & Weight Easier?

On the surface, a statement like that might seem wrong. After all, isn’t eating at the root of weight gain, obesity, and its complications? To a point, yes. This is especially true when we consume far more calories in one sitting then we need, and load our meals with carbohydrates and poor-quality fats. So eating more frequently may manage neuropathy and my weight easier?

Eating more frequently will stimulate your metabolism—or, how efficiently you burn versus store fat, keep your blood sugar more even, and actually help keep you warmer.

What I tell all my neuropathy patients—and, indeed, every patient—is to try to eat something not more than three hours apart.

But a little-known fact is that when we eat less frequently, we become much more efficient at storing fat rather than burning it. This is not to say periodic fasting isn’t helpful. Turns out it actually is.

So what does this have to do with managing peripheral neuropathy?

The bottom line is, eating more frequently will stimulate your metabolism—or, how efficiently you burn versus store fat, keep your blood sugar more even, and actually help keep you warmer. For patients who suffer from peripheral neuropathy, all of these things are crucial.

But this does not mean you can eat anything you want. What we do know is that by consuming relatively low amounts of carbohydrates in our meals, along with periodic low carb snacks, we become much more efficient metabolically. *Now, if you are an insulin-dependent diabetic, some of what I say here will not apply, so please be careful and work with your Doctor here.

What I tell all my patients is to try to eat something low carb (low carb meal or if a snack  some almonds, cashews, half a banana or apple, small salad with olive oil, small chia bar for example) not more than three hours apart. For example, you will start your breakfast with something like a protein shake, or a small serving of steel-cut oatmeal with a little added fat like Earth Balance, perhaps some berries. Approximately three hours later, you’ll have six to 10 almonds, or perhaps another lean, low-carbohydrate snack if nut allergies are a problem.

Again, this points out the need to work with well-trained neuropathy treatment professionals to truly manage your peripheral neuropathy and, indeed, your health in general.

Beat Neuropathy Before It’s Too Late

How would you like to say, “I beat neuropathy?”

If you suffer with neuropathy and have for any length of time, you understand pain and suffering on some level. Depending on the type of neuropathy (there are many), the progression, effect, and damage are variable. Likewise, what is not variable is, nerve pain hurts. Another common feature of all neuropathy is, if nothing is done to treat the root cause and sustain improvement, the neuropathy gets worse.

Lets make The Most Accurate Diagnosis. First!

Lets Make The Most Accurate Diagnosis First. We have been teaching patients and professionals this for many years. Here is one example why.

Recently, I had the opportunity to read an article written about pain & neuropathy treatment. This article was written directly for  patients.

Now maybe you even saw this yourself. It has been widely publicized as a “neuropathy treatment solution” in a bottle.

As I read through the article I couldn’t help but think of the patients I’ve seen in my clinic that have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, or another named condition when in fact they have also have another serious underlying health problem.

Unfortunately, this is not at all uncommon. I recently had this discussion with another doctor who repeated the same thing to me.

The fact of the matter is not every patient with a diagnosis or cause of their pain has had it fully explored and when possible confirmed. Far too often, the problem turns out to be something different than what they believed.

Treating patients with pain and neuropathy requires great skill, with much time dedicated to proper assessment and evaluation.

So often, pain, including peripheral neuropathy accompanies other medical conditions. Unless your Doctors are thorough, you can spend months and sometimes years chasing the wrong thing! This is happening more and more with all the Social Media “cures” and practices being promoted.

And that is why it is very important before beginning any extended program of care, it is crucial to most accurately understand what may be causing your symptoms.

Too often, patients with peripheral neuropathy have impaired sensation, and judgment affected by medication. This is one of the things that make self-treatment and home care without supervision potentially dangerous.

Be aware, there are also drug/diet supplement interactions, which can be potentially dangerous. A common one is Coumadin and Co Q10. Then there is the potential interaction with acetyl l Carnitine with thyroid, HIV and many chemotherapy drugs.

Choose your Doctor carefully. Stay away from fads, quick fixes or “magic treatment” pills or supplements.

When in doubt seek out our help before engaging any any questionable treatment. You can Call us anytime @ 781-659-7989.
