Dear Reader,

There's no doubt that diabetic nerve pain is agonizing.

It's a form of nerve damage that can cause numbness and a shooting, burning sensation -- like pins and needles -- especially in your hands and feet. You can become so sensitive that even having a bed sheet touch you is excruciating.

And if you have diabetes, you'll be told that's just another side effect of the disease.

But what if it isn't?

What if this agony was actually a side effect of the medication you're taking for diabetes?

And even more importantly, what if the difference between sleepless nights and days filled with pain could be stopped with an inexpensive, easy-to-find vitamin?

Well, some new research has found that very well may be the case.

The power of B
The consequences of vitamin B12 deficiency, (such as) neuropathy (nerve pain) or mental changes, may be profound."

That's how Mattijs Out, MD, an internist of vascular medicine at Bethesda Diabetes Research Center in the Netherlands, described what his group found in some brand new research.

And yes, he's talking about vitamin B12 -- that inexpensive supplement you can find just about everywhere.

A B12 deficiency can range from memory loss and depression to heart palpitations, shortness of breath and digestive ailments. And they also can include peripheral neuropathy -- that horrible nerve pain said to be frequently caused by type 2 diabetes.

But what the Dutch researchers blamed for a very common cause of B12 depletion wasn't diabetes, but rather one of the world's most commonly used drugs for treating it -- metformin.

The study was actually done to support earlier work by Dr. Out and his team. Research they did five years ago that led them to conclude that long-term use of metformin increased the risk of B12 deficiency by 19 percent.

This time, 290 patients who needed to take insulin were given either a dose of metformin or a placebo. The researchers then looked at a specific biomarker for B12 deficiency.

Based on what they found, Dr. Out said there was enough evidence to advise patients to take a B12 supplement, especially if they've been on metformin for several years.

Of course, for a mainstream researcher to recommend that patients take a supplement is amazing all on its own! And it's certainly something you can easily do.

But if you're a long-time user of metformin -- and especially if you are currently suffering from diabetic nerve pain -- you should be asking your doctor to test your B12 levels immediately, because you may need a high-dose injection of B12 to start off with.

And that's a much better option than getting an Rx for one of the most dangerous drugs on the planet -- Lyrica.

Side effects from this med commonly prescribed to treat diabetic nerve pain could fill a book. Things such as swelling of the face, mouth, throat or neck and trouble breathing along with burning, tingling, numbness or pain in the hands, arms, feet, or legs.

Give me a break! This risky med can trigger the very symptoms the FDA approved it to treat!

And while you're getting your B12 levels checked, maybe you should ask your doctor if you can ditch the diabetes meds altogether.

Supplementing with resveratrol, as I told you last year, has been found to significantly decrease fasting blood sugar, insulin and insulin resistance. Researchers have compared its effects to the same you'd see from lots of dangerous prescription drugs.

Of course if you suffer from any degree of nerve pain, you can do your own research. And if you find that B12 supplements work for you, that may be the only thing you really need to know.

To Your Good Health,
