Thanks for your response..The 167 was the result of my "GTT" , I should have wrote 2 hr gluocse tolerance test , not my fasting. My orning fasings are still normal ,80-91
What does "sx" mean?what does DM mean? I dont understand your sentence.
Yes, I take 300 benfotiamine 1 x day. Do you think that is too much?I do eat a good diet with no sugar, low calories and low carbs. I also take 2000mgs methycolocambim (b12) (sp) , 800 mcg folate, 50 HPH (b6), 400 Mag, Vit D ,2000, 1200 fish oil, RLA, AL Carnitine. I started taking most of these supplements nov 2012, they help with the burning under my feet, but I sill get bad tingling (pins & needles), buzzing, painful sensations all over my body. I started taking 50mg lyrica, 1xday, 4 weeks ago, can not go up in dose because of side effects. any suggestions would be appreciated..
