Although there are no guarantees of success, there are many treatments available for people suffering from peripheral neuropathy. All too often, I have had patients tell me that a physician told them that there are no successful treatments for peripheral neuropathy–they will just have to live with it. This is absolutely not true…many times patients suffering from peripheral neuropathy can be significantly helped.
If you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy you should see a qualified physician to have a complete medical history taken and an extensive medical exam performed. If an underlying disease is discovered to be the cause of the neuropathy then the successful treatment of that disease may reduce the intensity of the symptoms of the neuropathy or eliminate the symptoms completely. Unfortunately, many times no underlying disease can be found. In this case the neuropathy is called idiopathic.
There are, of course, times when a patient is told their neuropathy is idiopathic when in fact the cause was just not discovered by their physician. In fact, a recent study found that 40% of all cases of peripheral neuropathy diagnosed as idiopathic were actually associated with prediabetes.
In my clinical experience the majority of cases of peripheral neuropathy in people over 50 years of age are caused by diabetes, prediabetes, or excessive and chronic alcohol consumption. In many of these cases a deficiency in vitamin B1, also called LowB1, contributes to the problem. Many of these patient respond to appropriate vitamin B1 therapy. I am aware of tens of thousands of people suffering from peripheral neuropathy who have benefited from a high-potency bioactive form of vitamin B1.
