Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health

I haven't noticed any changes in neuropathy in my feet being on a gluten free diet, However, I have noticed a change in my neuropathy in my feet when I got completely off of diet sodas and high fructose corn syrup. My neuropathy is about half gone now. I originally decided to avoid all diet sweeteners, aspartame, etc. and high fructosse corn syrup because my A1C was 5.8. My doctor said to try to lose some weight and we'd recheck my A1C in 3 months. Well, I forgot about it, went from all diet sweeteners to regular granulated sugar. Sugar in my tea, my coffee, and real sugar in my throwback Mountain dew. Got a call to reschedule my A1C (I don't have any diabetes, my neuropathy is probably from Charcot Marie Tooth, which is a genetic neuropathy.) My A1C after drinking all that sugar, was below 5.0!! so it went down that much just because I was off the sweeteners! My doctor was amazed, he kept saying, "I have received emails from people I knew in medical school, but I never really believed it!" So he was more surprised than I was!

Amazing - that would appear to go against all the related medical advice. Thanks for your feedback. Seems that people doing their own research and trying things their "gut" tells them might work often yields better results than following the advice of "experts".
