The cause of peripheral neuropathy in diabetics is very complex and far from completely understood.  But there is a well-established connection between diabetes, vitamin B1 deficiency and peripheral neuropathy. 

Adequate amounts of vitamin B1 are essential for nerves to function properly.  So, it is not surprising that vitamin B1 deficiency, also known as LowB1, is a well-known cause of peripheral neuropathy.  What is less well known is that most diabetics are vitamin B1 deficient.  Research has shown that diabetics urinate out vitamin B1 at a much greater rate than non-diabetics. This leads to significantly lower levels of vitamin B1 circulating in the blood. The resulting deficiency causes the nerves of the feet and legs to stop working properly–causing numbness, tingling, burning, and/or shooting pains in the feet and legs.  

The relationship between diabetes, vitamin B1 deficiency, and peripheral neuropathy has gone relatively unrecognized by many physicians. Fortunately, a high-potency bioactive form of the vitamin can reverse vitamin B1 deficiency and improve the function of the nerves in the feet and legs.
