What Is Alcoholic Neuropathy & Can It Be Reversed?

Many people wonder as to what is alcoholic neuropathy and can it be reversed? Alcoholic neuropathy is a condition in which the peripheral nerves get damaged, mostly due to excessive drinking of alcohol. It is a type of peripheral neuropathy occurring in alcoholics and the symptoms of alcoholic neuropathy can be identified by increasing its awareness. It is important to understand the causes and symptoms of alcoholic neuropathy to begin with timely treatment. Recovery in alcoholic neuropathy can be expected in most cases, which receive timely treatment. Alcoholic neuropathy can be reversed in some cases, with proper management and treatment. In alcoholic neuropathy, the peripheral nervous system gets damaged, most probably due to alcohol abuse, as alcohol can be toxic for the nerves. Peripheral nerves carry signals from the body to the brain and spinal cord and bring signals back to the body. Neuropathy severely affects the way the nerves send signals to or receive from the brain. As a result of this, there are changes in the way the nerves sense the signals, which results in pain or alteration in sensations. Peripheral nerves supply the peripheral areas, which include the limbs or Continue reading >>

    Hello All.
    One newbie question for everyone. How long are you generally on Induction before your body goes into Ketosis? I realize it depends a lot on how "good" you are counting your carbs.
    I bought the KetoStix yesterday (my third day) and it showed a trace/small amount of Ketosis (I kind of figured I was beginning to be in Ketosis because I had that taste in my mouth).
    However, later, I checked it and it read negative. This morning, I do not have that taste and I'm wondering if maybe it had something to do with Yellow onions I had last night with my venison?
    Are yellow onions too high in carbs? I can't remember where I put my list.
    I only had half of one. But, I fried it with the venison and it caramelized which maybe brings out sugars in it????
    Also, are the Atkins Advantage Bars NOT a good thing for Induction? I was very short of time yesterday at work and had one for breakfast and one for lunch. Perhaps this also contributed to too many carbs.
    Thanks for the support and the info!!!!

    I generally take 2 to 3 days to hit ketosis. As for the Atkin's bars, most poeple don't like them because they cause a stall. Inductions generally needs to be frankenfood clean for best chance to clean your system and loose the most weight.
    Sorry ; )

    You can be in ketosis even if the strips do not turn. The more water you are drinking (which is good), the less the strips will turn. I was never able to get the strips to do anything, but the weight kept coming off. Caramelizing the onions does allow more carbs (sugars) to be released so go easy on them. Save that until you are off induction.
    The few times that I tried to use low-carb bars, my weight loss quit. I no longer even consider buying them.
