Default Article - Medication Could Reverse Peripheral Neuropathy

In the category of "for what's it's worth," this came across in my alerts today...

"The discovery suggests that pirenzepine and other anti-muscarinic drugs – a class of nerve medication that is already used to treat Parkinson’s disease, motion sickness, irritable bowel syndrome and other conditions – could be used as a new treatment for peripheral neuropathy."

FBG -90 A1C - 5.7 with glucose spikes, reactive hypoglycemia, can't metabolize alcohol, low-normal levels of biotinidase.


Continually experimenting with supplements:
  • 100 mg R-Lipoic Acid, 4 Tbsp milled flax seed, Omega 3's - Fish Oil (2400 mg EPA, 1200mg DHA), 2000 IU D3, 200 mg Magnesium Biglycinate, 500 mg Lysine, 1000 mg Taurine, 100 mg CoQ10
  • 5 mg Meribin Biotin for low-normal biotinidase levels thanks to a genetic mutation. The biotin appears to have "cured" my reactive hypoglycemia. My FBG has gone from the 70s to the 90s, and I no longer become hypo when I fast or exercise without carb intake.
  • Low carb "back to the farm" diet
  • Quell TENS unit, 5% lidocaine patches, magnesium cream

Thanks Janie. I read through this looking for the word REVERSE and they do say that a few times.
I wasn't clear exactly how the reversal takes place physiologically. But sounds hopeful. Look forward to them reporting pre clinical results - next month I think they said.

I wonder how long all this will take to get the drugs approved for SFN ........

Unfortunately this class of drugs is implicated in fostering Alzheimer's.

Google

Anticholinergic - Wikipedia

So there will have to be much more work done on this data to
provide safe use for PNers.

Thank you MrsD. Here's the response I received from writing directly to the author. "Unfortunately, I don't think this research has advanced very far and there is no timetable for when the medication might be approved for neuropathy."
