    I have none but here is a cocktail that has been used by some people in the
    past (and probably current times) with success.

    Feet and lower legs.

    For that I take Evening Primrose Oil and ALA. But most of all I tried to
    keep my BG in check.

    Also stomach. For that I watch what I eat. No foods with a lot of fiber.
    No hard to digest meats. I also take Metoclopramide.

    Fiber slows blood glucose spikes, why no fiber?
    What is Metoclopramide?

    Because I have gastroparesis. That's damage to the vagus nerve of the
    stomach and that in turn causes slowed digestion. I can only eat easy to
    digest foods or risk a bezoar. That's a food ball much like a hair ball in
    a cat. If I get one it must be surgically removed.

    Metoclopramide speeds up digestion.

    My feet aren't dead for the most time. Sometimes part or all of them
    are pretty numb. Usually it is burning, hurting,pincushion.
    It is a lot better than it has been at times, in the past.
    I was told by the DR some time ago the Gall Bladder problem I have might
    be linked to Neuropathy. It might somehow be responsible for the recent
    very bad bowel episode. If they hadn't got the tube down me a little
    longer who knows. The pain was such I wanted to die.
    Some times my feet and legs don't bother me very much or at all.

    No. Neuropathy was possibly affecting the Gall bladder. He wasn't
    conclusive. I don't know if they can tell for sure. My doctor left and
    it hasn't been addressed since.

    yes I had gallstones back in my twenties (yet another thing I was told
    categorically I didn't have - I keep the stones in a jar to bring out
    whenever any more doctors tell me categorically I am not ill)

    One factor was obviously the crap lipids the doctor knew about but
    refused to tell me about, but I've read that neuropathy affecting the
    gallbladder contractions is often a factor.

    Yet another disease which is commoner in diabetics and also people who
    are "not diabetic yet"
