Levaquin Peripheral Neuropathy
ATTENTION HAVE YOU TAKEN THE DRUG LEVAQUIN? IF SO, PLEASE, LISTEN TO THIS IMPORTANT MESSAGE. Millions of lives have been saved becauseof the discovery of antibiotics. Fluoroquinolones are a type of powerful antibiotic which havebeen used to treat serious and lifethreatening bacterial infections. These fluoroquinolonesinclude the antibiotic drug, Levaquin. However, Levaquin has often been prescribedfor less serious ailments, such as sinus infections or ear infections, as well as other problemsthat could be treated with antibiotics that aren't quite as potent. This has resultedin many people developing Levaquin peripheral
neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the nervesthat carry information from the brain to the central nervous system have become damaged.This results in a variety of symptoms and many people have become disabled due to theuse of these antibiotics. Some of these symptoms include: Shooting painBurning or tingling sensation Lack of coordination and muscle weaknessDigestive issues DizzinessLightheadedness
Changes in blood pressureVision problems Sweating or intolerance to heat In 2013, the FDA required drug makers to listperipheral neuropathy as a side effect. This came 12 years after the connection had alreadybeen made. Levaquin nerve damage can result in permanentdisability and rob a victim of their ability to work. A number of lawsuits have alreadybeen filed, all of which claim the companies failed to provide patients with adequate warningsabout their association with peripheral neuropathy. If you or someone you know has taken Avelox,Cipro or Levaquin and developed any burning,
tingling, numbness of the legs and or arms,or were diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, you may be entitled to compensation. Howevertime is limited to file a claim.

Reducing Neuropathy Discomfort with Alpha Lipoic Acid
Hi, this is Silvester and I'm goingto talk to you about another one of the supplements that we use in our patients who have diabeticneuropathy and that's called alpha lipoic acid. Alpha lipoic acid has been used for20 years, treating a lot of different conditions: HIV, sciatica, cancer, liver problems, hepatitis,strokes, vascular disease, diabetes, cataracts, glaucoma, and multiple sclerosis. Also, it'sbeen used in patients who have Alzheimer's, to try to help them somewhat. It's not completelyeffective in any of those things it's a supplement and used as an adjunctive treatmentfor all of those things. It also plays an important role in nerve metabolism, becausewhat alpha lipoic acid does, is it works in
a thing called the Krebs Cycle in your cell.What the Krebs Cycle is is it's the cycle that generates most of the energy that a cellneeds. If you think of it like a gas tank in a car,alpha lipoid acid supports putting fuel in that gas tank. The energy requirements incells varies a lot on the type of the cell. Your skin cells don't require very muchenergy, muscle cells require some, tendons require very little because they just sitthere, but nerve cells are always using energy. They're the most nerve sensitive cell inyour body. By taking alpha lipoid acid and supporting that fuel tank, you can actuallyincrease your nerve's ability to function
normally and to heal. The other thing thatalpha lipoid acid does is after you take enough that your Krebs Cycle is full, it then becomesan antioxidant. If you do some research on oxidative stress, we think that plays a significantrole in a lot of different disease processes including neuropathy. Alpha lipoic acid isa supplement that we use quite frequently in our patients with diabetic neuropathy,and what we tell them is that they've got to be a little bit careful, because alphalipoic acid can lower your blood sugar. It's a benefit if you have a little trouble withyour blood sugar, it's probably not a benefit if you're under good control. Also, it cancause a little problem with your thyroid.
Levothyroxine can go down and also you probablyshouldn't take it if you're having chemotherapy or radiation therapy because it helps cellsheal, and the treatment you're undergoing to try to get rid of those problems, the reasonyou're going to go on chemotherapy or radiation therapy is to kill cells, and so you probablydon't want to take alpha lipoic acid if you're getting those.Alpha lipoic acid has been shown to be pretty effective in helping patients with neuropathy.Thanks for listening!.
How Acetyl L Carnitine Helps Treat Neuropathy
Hi this is Silvester and I'm going totalk to you a little bit today about one of the supplements we use for our patients withdiabetic neuropathy that seems to have a big effect in helping them and their nerves getbetter. There was actually a study done with this supplement where they took 1,275 patientswho took this supplement, and they actually showed an increase in nerve fiber density,after taking this supplement for 52 weeks. They also showed that they had significantdecrease in their pain, and they had significantly improved quality of life after taking thissupplement. It's acetyl l carnitine. Acetyl l carnitine works in the same way as manyother antioxidants and many other nerve healing
supplements. They help the nerve make moreenergy so it can heal itself and regrow. If you want to start your nerves on the pathof healing, not just treating them with prescription medication, which really all they do is helpthe nerve feel better while it's dying, you can actually heal them with acetyl l carnitineand good studies have backed that up. With all supplements you want to check with your to make sure it's okay to start taking them but acetyl l carnitine can have a bigbenefit for patients with neuropathy.
