Un nuevo libro liga la enfermedad de Fibromialgia y Alzheimer a la diabetes

Chronic Nerve Pain May Be Successfully Treated by RAISING Blood Sugar Levels RESTON, Va., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/
-- Millions of people suffer from the chronic pain and complications of autonomic neuropathy, a degenerative nerve disease. A new book suggests that this suffering can be effectively treated by raising blood sugar levels at key points. In doing so, Type 4 Diabetes raises the prospect that neuropathy, fibromyalgia and Alzheimer's may be all linked to diabetes as symptoms of the same problem with glucose metabolism.

"Type 4 Diabetes: Elevated Insulin. Lower Blood Sugar. 24/7 Pain." is based on a seven-year journey by the author, Bob Ranson, from cardiac arrest in 1999 to a life of constant pain and complications, a pacemaker and dozens of only partially effective medications. Now, Ranson is living pain- and drug- free through the discovery of the link between the nerve disorder and glucose levels.

More than a personal journal, "Type 4 Diabetes" combines the author's experiences and discoveries with groundbreaking research being conducted by experts in Alzheimer's, fibromyalgia and other chronic disorders. The title, "Type 4 Diabetes," in fact reflects and pays respect to the work being conducted at Brown Medical School on halting the progressive degeneration of Alzheimer's Disease by treating it with a new class of diabetes medications. In 2006, the Brown team proposed that Alzheimer's be relabeled as Type 3 Diabetes.

Suffering from both autonomic neuropathy and diabetes, Ranson literally stumbled across his findings as he recorded the pain and effectiveness of the medications to treat the nervous disorder while he monitored daily glucose levels in another diary. The growing realization that he was dealing with at least related diseases led him to decision to use himself as a "lab rat" and test out theories and potential treatment approaches.

In his book, the author describes this process in a concise style and integrates his findings with the writings of medical experts about faulty glucose metabolism - the cause of diabetes. The author subsequently points to an abnormal interaction between two key hormones, adrenaline and insulin, as being the foundation for the suffering experienced by people with neuropathy, fibromyalgia and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). He notes, in fact, that researchers at the National Institutes of Health know of the link but lack the funds to investigate it at this time.

The goal of the book, as the author states, is not to answer questions. Rather it is to engage patients and experts to explore in detail the broader implications of blood sugar problems - not just the highs of traditional diabetes treatment, but the low levels of glucose as well.

"Type 4 Diabetes" is currently available through Web retailers, Amazon, Borders, Barnes & Noble and The Book Depository (UK). In addition to the book, the author has launched a website/blog to encourage patients and experts to share their experiences, observations and thoughts at
