I started taking a low dose of Omega Force, a nutrition supplement, last October after having studied the potential clinical benefits in an effort to reduce the discomfort associated with diabetic neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy is a complication of diabetes which can cause distressing episodes of muscular cramp pain and discomfort. 30 years of insulin treatment for Type 1 diabetes with almost 22,000 twice daily insulin injections led to my suffering severe muscular cramps with extreme pain when waking in the morning and I was experiencing about one acute episode every month. My pain threshold is low and these experiences were very distressing to both myself and my wife. I eat a balanced diet and am careful of what I eat and drink and try to exercise daily to so as to minimise the risk of complications of diabetes but these episodes of painful neuropathy came without warning.
I have been taking Omega Force now for 8 months, one tablet daily each morning, and started to notice benefits after about 2 – 3 months. I did experience one very severe neuropathy episode last December due to severe stress, and have occasionally experienced minor episodes, however I can confidently say that I think Omega Force has significantly minimised the incidence and severity of painful neuropathy episodes I previously experienced.
I was also interested to learn that Omega Force may be a useful supplement in the treatment of neurological disorders. Recurrent hypoglycaemia in patients with diabetes can lead to hypoglycaemia unawareness causing memory loss, neurological problems, and sometimes depression, which I experienced when incorrectly treated with a 20% overdose of the wrong insulin for 9 years from 1985 – 1994. Having personally experienced a very stressful time in the last 8 months I also am of the opinion that Omega Force supplement has assisted in keeping me feeling positive and emotionally stable in difficult times.
Omega Force may not help everyone who suffers from diabetes but for anyone suffering from painful neuropathy episodes it is certainly worth trying for a period of a minimum of three months then assessing your wellbeing. Thank you for introducing me to Omega Force.
