Abstract:  Control of blood sugar, along with nutritional supplementation, plays an essential role in the prevention and treatment of diabetic neuropathy. By compounding supplements into an easy-to-follow regimen, pharmacists can play an active role in facilitating management of blood-glucose control and in attempting to forestall diabetic neuropathy. The author discusses vitamin E, chromium, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, zinc, vanadium, inositol and gamma-linoleic acid. She also provides a patient nutritional supplement quick reference guide, two formulations (Superior Diabetes Vitamin and Mineral Formulation Capsules, and Inositol 750-mg Capsules) and a patient handout on diabetes management guidelines.

Related Keywords: diabetic neuropathy, tingling sensation, burning sensation, nerve conduction, vitamin E, insulin sensitivity, chromium picolinate, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, Zinc sulfate, vanadyl sulfate, Inositol, GLA, wound healing, insulin, glucose tolerance, nerve function
