Emerging Insights On Interdigital Neuromas And Metabolic Syndrome

by Richard Jacoby, DPM, and Chad Thomas, DPM

The prevalence of metabolic syndrome and diabetes is increasing at a startling rate, and there is a high occurrence of neuroma pain with patients who exhibit symptoms of metabolic syndrome. Taking a closer look at the research and offering insights from their own experience, these authors suggest that clinicians should consider any patient with “neuroma pain” as being at risk for pre-diabetes.

‘Insulin vs. Ketones – The Battle for Brown Fat’

Dr. Benjamin Bikman earned his Ph.D. in Bioenergetics and was a postdoctoral fellow with the Duke-National University of Singapore in metabolic disorders. He is currently a professor of pathophysiology and a biomedical scientist at Brigham Young University in Utah.

Dr. Bikman’s professional focus as a scientist and professor is to better understand chronic modern-day diseases, with a special emphasis on the origins and consequences of obesity and diabetes, with an increasing scrutiny of the pathogenicity of insulin and insulin resistance. He frequently publishes his research in peer-reviewed journals and presents at international science meetings.

Dr. Bikman has long been an advocate of a ketogenic diet in light of the considerable evidence supporting its use as a therapy for reversing insulin resistance. His website InsulinIQ.com promotes dietary clarity, healing, and freedom through evidence-based science about insulin resistance. Employing cell-autonomous to whole-body systems, Dr. Bikman’s recent efforts have focused on exploring the intimate associations between the metabolic and immune systems.

Toxic Sugar, the Real Villain Behind the Obesity Epidemic

In only a few decades, there are now more obese people on the planet than there are undernourished. When it comes to getting fat, we’ve come to believe it’s as simple as ‘calories in’ versus ‘calories out’ – if you want to shed the kilos, you need to burn more calories than you consume. But not all calories are the same. Some people absorb calories more efficiently and it matters what types of foods your calories are coming from.
