Have you given Dr. Bergman's treatment a chance. He claims you can get your health back in 60 days if you follow his treatment. Get a juicer and follow his advice. You might get your health back.

Although I do have value for many of Bergman's idea's, I don't think going vegan will cure everyone's MS. Sorry to oversimplify, and your suggestion is not without value, but it does not apply in this instance.

What I am searching for is the possibility of insulin or blood sugar causing my recent onset of numbness/poor circulation in my feet. In particular, I have checked the levels in the past and never found them to be a high. I kind of gave up on that being an issue for me. But the similar symptoms of diabetes and what I am experiencing now are remarkable. Without giving my life history, I was a poor caretaker of my body prior to MS. But since dx's have a healthy regiment of diet, excersice and minimize stress. I am gluten and dairy free also. Take lots of good supplements, but nothing exotic or out of the realm of vitamins and minerals.


Standingtall, in checking the insulin level in the past, what has been the exact number? The ideal number will be 3 UU/ML or lower; an acceptable result would be up to 5 UU/ML. My first test result was 12, which is elevated; but, unfortunately, my lab lists the standard range as 3-28.

Excess insulin thickens and stiffens smooth muscles – the muscles in the walls of blood vessels are smooth muscles. I think this accounts for your numbness/poor circulation in your feet.

Your diet sounds good (Are you 100% gluten-free?); some people are extremely sensitive to the smallest amount of gluten. I hope your diet is extremely low in carbs. Don't forget to add lots of good fats – olive oil, avocado, and nuts. Exercise and minimal stress are also part of a good regimen.

If you are talking about type II diabetes, remember that excess insulin production is occurring in a person with type II diabetes.
