A Different View of Neuropathy – When the Feet Speak to the Brain

Majid Ali, M.D.

Insulin Toxicity Series


Feet often have much to say to the brain. The language of the feet, however, is usually misunderstood or not understood by the brain at all. Below, I present a case study of insulin toxicity in which the feet screamed to the brain for years but the brain did not hear any thing. After you read the case study, for more information please consider Dr. Ali’s Insulin Course on this web site.


A Case Study

A 62-yr-old 5’5″ man weighing 140 lbs consulted me numbness, tingling, and burning pain in his feet of more than five years duration. He had a history of having suffered from irritable bowel syndrome, recurrent headache, muscle soreness and cramps, and episodes of joint pain and stiffness for several years before developing the feet symptoms.

He had consulted many doctors who had done extensive tests. One test that no one had done was 3-hour insulin test. The table below presents his insulin and glucose profiles.

Insulin toxicity is the cause of peripheral neuropathy in more than 90% of cases in my own patients. It is regrettable that insulin testing is neglected by neurologists, internists, and primary doctors.
