Diabetic neuropathy in dogs treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Diabetic neuropathy in dogs treatment


Avatar m tn I bought a blood glucose monitor and tested my blood sugar in case this was diabetic neuropathy, Levels came back normal after several tests. I can understand a tingling or burning sensation if you are suddenly jolted into flight or fight response..but for it to linger for months and months like this? It is miserable living like this, I dread this is the rest of my life, with feet that buzz and tingle with every step.
Avatar f tn (I have two 1st cousins and one-2nd cousin on my mother's side that have MS) I'm a type 2 diabetic and my readings have been in the normal range after the episodes (I check them after every one to be sure) I followed up with a cardiologist who feels it's the diabetes, but my endocrinologist said that it's not related to the diabetes.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar f tn I tried to remove one with tweezers, and it was very tacky (as in sticky) and clearly goes deep under the skin. Part of it broke off but I could still see that the pore was plugged and a day or two later top of the plug was sticking out again. i can't find ANYTHING online that looks like it.

1342335 tn?1276725927 I think that if you research home cooked diet or dog food for diabetic dogs, you'll find some good alternatives to Hills, I'm personally not a fan of Hills dog food, they use preservatives BHA, BHT and ETHOXYQUIN that cause cancer in dogs. You can find some recipes in this book: Home-Prepared Dog and Cat Diets: the Healthful Alternative. Donald R. Strombeck, DVM. Iowa State University Press. ISBN 0813821495, you might be able to get it from the public library or a used book from Amazon.
Avatar m tn Although the majority of experts favor the ingredient for its numerous health benefits, garlic (in rare cases) has been linked to Heinz body anemia in dogs.1 However, the limited professional literature we surveyed provided no definitive warnings regarding the use of garlic… especially in small amounts (as it is here). Next, this Chef Michael’s product also contains menadione, a controversial form of vitamin K linked to liver toxicity, allergies and the abnormal break-down of red blood cells.
544292 tn?1268886268 I don't have much to offer you... pretty much everything you need is in these posts, in yourselves, and in your connections with other people. I never took tramadol, but opiates were one of several substances I was addicted to when my sky fell some years before tramadol was introduced. I believe absolutely that the primary characteristics of tramadol withdrawall are substantially the same as opiate withdrawall.
251222 tn?1270939717 You have too many sensory symptoms happening for it to be just peripheral, like diabetic neuropathy in my opinion. The nystagmus (words jumping on the menu) , the strange sensations (feelings of 'wetness'), the running into walls, these are not part of neuropathy. This would be more indicative of MS as apparently your MRI has shown. I don't know much about strokes, but I doubt these are symptoms of stroke. Yea, judge!
Avatar f tn It can cause the skin to become so sensitive that one can experience intense pain and pricking or a tingling sensation, even when the skin is touched gently. Diabetic neuropathy, which is a complication of diabetes, could also be a contributory factor. Fibromyalgia, the condition which is associated with heightened painful response to pressure, can also cause allodynia.
230948 tn?1235847929 In my opinion, I would ask the neurologist who told you that your tests came back normal if there is anything that he can do to help you with the pain while you are waiting to see the doctor about your joints. We have here what they call pain clinics and I know a friend of mine with diabetic neuropathy has found great results in working with them. You may have something like that within your healthcare system and not be aware of it but your doctor may.
272434 tn?1228610809 hello,s sorry to here you are in a lot of pain mrsmais, and hope you ease up soon, i am like vabreeze as in all the different meds iv,e taken, the crawly feel of spiders on your head and body feeling, it,s like your covered top to toe in them and all their feet are electrofying ,running allover {nasty little things ha ha} heat spots are daily and in differnt places, has anyone got cold spots??? i get them all the time on legs /back /rms etc, and no amount of heat warms them!!
Avatar n tn I am 2 years status post treatment, 2nd year in a row with no trace in my blood. Thank God for that. But-I still have joint pain every day, still have low energy and now have developed DIABETES. I saw a rheumatologist as I had a positive rheumatoid factor. She said I do not have rheumatoid arthritis, no damage to the joints. Can't take nonsteroidals because I have damage to my liver. When I ask for something for the pain, I get treated like a drug seeker.
348629 tn?1212329273 diabetic neuropathy antidepressant postherpetic neuralgia acute opioid withdrawal management antidepressant withdrawal aid (proven to be effective, especially with withdrawal from its distant relative venlafaxine (Effexor). obsessive-compulsive disorder premature ejaculation PTSD --Seizures have been reported in humans receiving excessive single oral doses (700 mg) or large intravenous doses (300 mg).
Avatar n tn I took my treatment in 1997, and I am still suffering side effects. The treatment was not successful then. Now in addition to the side effects, now I have the symptoms of a much deteriorated liver, so of course life was better before the first treatment, but it is not only the side effects it is the condition of your liver that must be getting worse after so many years (unless you successfully cleared the virus then).
2127265 tn?1335336467 I now have to have C3-4 down to L5 done due to more bone degeneration (I've been a Brittle Type 1 Insulin Dependent Diabetic since 2/23/1967 and also had radiation treatment for breast cancer 1998). After many years of trying different medications including a spinal cord stimulator (which failed due to too much nerve damage), my Pain Specialist finally came up with a comination that worked. Since 6/13/2001, I have been on some kind of opiate for pain.
147426 tn?1317269232 The reason I asked is that I looked through two other threads that talk about this and the vast majority of those that identified with this did not have a diagnosis of MS (yet). I am wondering if it is common in this disease. It is often complained of in Lyme Disease, but I have also heard of it in Transverse Myelitis (which also could be MS). I suspect it is common to any demyelinating disease, but curious as to the experience here, even if you have posted on the older thread.
1852058 tn?1320162300 prior to new year my spouse was very successful business owner of 30+ yrs,which unfortunately has changed a lot of whether I see my doctor 1x month or quarterly. I come in peach,so that my particular treatment of FM is the best I can for now. Thanks all so much for ur advice,don't stop,we all need to learn & the only stupid question,is not asking it......
Avatar n tn I am also overweight, diabetic and generally could be diagnosed as having metabolic syndrome, which in turn can cause reduced testosterone production. So then it becomes a chicken and egg sort of mental game, and those sorts often have no clear winners.
519226 tn?1378994921 I finally realized it's because she can't stand looking at me since I favor my father and grandmother in looks. It's just simply, that I exist. Well I am finally stating in this entry what I felt for a long time. I DESPISE HER!!!!! She disgusts me. How dare she talk about me and lie. How dare she treat me nasty and disrespectfully, even in front of my kids. I cannot stand her. I am an adult and deserve respect.
Avatar n tn I had surgery on my hands and developed a complication called neuropathy. There are a couple of kinds. One is where you can't feel anything, like in your feet(that is why there are so many foot and leg amputations.) Some diabetics can't feel if they have a soar. The other kind is PAINFUL neuropathy which is what I got after my hand surgery. I became suicidal in the hospital because they could not control my pain. After 8 weeks, I was put on liquid morpheine.
356518 tn?1322267242 And he hasn't even tried to do anything for the diabetic neuropathy in my legs and feet. Hurt so bad can't hardly walk sometimes. It's amazing that so many of us manage to work, have a house and family. Think what we could do if we weren't so pain challeneged! Take care all. Good night.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
Avatar m tn 34 am and it starts getting bad in the later evening and is very uncomfortable now). Lately I've been getting this in the morning. No new meds, foods, exposures, clothing, body or hair products either. Please help!
Avatar n tn After doing further research, this could be a sign of diabetes or neuropathy diabetes (or something like that). My mother was a borderline diabetic so this is a possibility for me. Guess I'm going to get checked for that. Just thought I'd let y'all know what it could be.

Avatar n tn I've researched EVERYTHING and have a specialist doctor who says everything from neuropathy to tumor in spine. I've had the MRIs and x-rays and shock reflex test etc...DONT waste your money!!! (results all say nothing's there) I am overweight but dont think that's the problem. I've been on pain meds for 6 years and then this numbness/burning/itching bullsh*t hit me and it feels like a blood vessel has popped and it trickling hot blood just under my thigh tissue right above my knee.
