In neuropathy, fatigue can be the result of pain, and emotional stress.
One of the things many neuropathy patients tell us is how tired they can feel from day to day. Now fatigue is common in many health conditions and should never be taken lightly.
For example, profound fatigue with weight loss can be a sign of several diseases, including cancer.
Diabetics often report fatigue, as do those patients with anemia and simple over work and inadequate sleep.
In neuropathy, fatigue can be the result of pain and emotional stress.
Sometimes it’s from the diseases that may have caused your neuropathy.
But one of the things we observed a few years back on is that when treating neuropathy patients who suffer from the most common types we see (sensory, due to diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and chemotherapy) is that when good neuropathy treatment begins, fatigue starts to vanish too!
And we even find patients with more serious forms of neuropathy improved as well, though more slowly and not as completely.
You see, we know that in the most common forms of neuropathy, energy production by the body in general, and the nerve cells in particular, is poor. I theorized early on that therapies that can boost metabolism, or how our bodies efficiently “burn” fuel, will very often help neuropathy patients regain function.
These therapies include some food compounds, supplements and exercise, as well as therapies like laser and microcurrent, which help individual cells produce ATP, which is the energy powerhouse behind every living cell!
And as a side benefit, we see our diabetic and obese patients losing significant weight, and some dropping their blood sugars significantly and thus their need for medications.
So here is the best news of all: When patients engage in neuropathy treatment programs that handle all the key pieces they can, fatigue fades away, and energy and a profound sense of well-being return to many neuropathy patients!
