DD

Lisa,
What are you expecting insurance to pay? If you are newly diagnosed for DD in the hand and you just felt a lump on your foot, what is there to do that insurance would pay?

Was told to try Ben Gay or similar product on the feet. Pain stopped.

Used to have pain in the morning

I used to have severe cramping in both feet upon getting out of bed in the middle of the night and first thing in the morning. There were times that I got up too fast and almost fell because of the sharp pains that seized my feet; even though I only have a small nodule in one foot. I also had cramps in the hand that has a nodule.

Since I've been on the ketogenic diet all cramping and pain has stopped.

Ketogenic Diet

Sorry about the double post.

Simply put; the ketogenic diet is the process of getting your body to burn fat for energy, instead of glycogen. This is done by strictly limiting your carb intake and creating a balance of a 4 to 1 fat to protein ratio. It was developed by The Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins University medical schools for treating seizure disorders in children; and has proven very effective for some types of epilepsy. The Atkins and South Beach diets use this principal to get your body to start burning fat. However, maintaining a constant ketogenic state, as a lifestyle, is the goal of some people, including myself.

As a hypoglycaemic, I was on a constant cycle of sugar induced highs and lows. Once I got the carbohydrates out of my diet; the cravings stopped and I now feel better than I ever imagined I could. I have more energy, and no longer crash in the afternoons. It sounds like a commercial, but I have nothing to gain by promoting this lifestyle.

I'm not sure what the exact relationship to my DD is; but I suspect that it has something to do with sugar or insulin. All I know is that my nodules are smaller now.

googling ketogenic diet or ketosis should tell you what you need to know.

Cheers,
Roxanne
