      My oncology practice had me on B6 and glutamine while I was getting the drug that was supposed to cause neuropathy--I never had any....

      Any sort of movement helped me. Weight bearing exercise, preferably, but if that isn't feasible, massage and stretching. Just 5-10 minutes every couple of hours is what helped me the most. I would think keeping the diabetes in control would be a big factor too.
