  5. I've read that there is a supplement called ALA which often works for diabetic neuropathy. Caution - there is also a second supplement called ALA with no noticeable effect on this.

  6. has not set their status

  7. I've had some distortion of my toes also, but that seems to be due to wearing an ankle brace on one foot without getting a bigger shoe for that foot. As for the sleep problem, you might check if your current list of medicines includes simvastatin. I've found sleep problems included on its list of known side effects. Several other types of statins are available, but usually cost more.
  8. The help we have received to date is from our church. God bless each one of those who contributed to that. In addition to my strokes we found out a year ago my husband had metastasic cancer of the pancreas. He is in Hospice. Could our families help yes do they only with words or the ride here or there.. I love them anyway God is here for us Karen I've found a little information about that type of cancer which you may or may not find useful. A particular research group in Texas thinks that they may have found something that will cure that type of cancer, but their method has one big problem: A significant risk of it causing some other type of cancer (such as leukemia) around 10 years later. http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00968604?term=gene+therapy&cond=pancreatic+cancer&state1=NA%3AUS%3ATX&rank=4 If you find it reasonable to spend about a month in Texas, you may want to ask his doctors to check if he has the type of pancreatic cancer they want to test against. Something on that treatment method: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2007/dec/19/cancer.medicalresearch If you think that this is unsuitable, here are a few more clinical trials you may be interested in: http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00726037?term=pancreatic+cancer&recr=Open&rank=8 http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00761345?term=pancreatic+cancer&recr=Open&rank=12 http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00968175?term=pancreatic+cancer&recr=Open&state1=NA%3AUS%3AAL&rank=1 http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01064622?term=pancreatic+cancer&recr=Open&rank=11 A neighbor appeared to need such information months ago, or I would not have it handy. Not in time for her, though. The FRDA usually requires clinical trials in the US to be free except for travel expenses getting there and back.
  9. Happy Birthday Robert Miles!

  10. For most medicines, you can put http://www. then the medicine name then .com and get the name of a web site where you can get more information about that medicine. I tried it for aggrenox, getting http://www.aggrenox.com and going there took me to http://www.aggrenox.com/consumer/index.jsp
