It is estimated that about one in five people with prediabetes suffers from peripheral neuropathy. In the US, that works out to about 15 million people. Unfortunately, the association between prediabetes and peripheral neuropathy is not well known to many physicians.  Many people with peripheral neuropathy are often told that they have idiopathic peripheral neuropathy (peripheral neuropathy of unknown cause) when in fact prediabetes is the cause.  

People with prediabetes should always consult a physician, counselor or dietician on ways to make better choices on what to eat and how to exercise.  Making these lifestyle changes is vitally important and may help to delay or possibly stop the progression of prediabetes to diabetes.  Lifestyle changes may also delay the progression and intensity of peripheral neuropathy.

Although an association between vitamin B1 deficiency and prediabetics who suffer from peripheral neuropathy has yet to be studied. In my experience,  many prediabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy have improved significantly by taking a high-potency bioactive form of vitamin B1.
