If a cause of a patient’s peripheral neuropathy can not be determined the neuropathy is said to be idiopathic.  Idiopathic peripheral neuropathy is diagnosed in about one-third of people with neuropathy.  It usually afflicts people in their 50’s and above.  The diagnosis of idiopathic neuropathy is only appropriate after an extensive medical workup by a qualified physician.  Many people are diagnosed with idiopathic neuropathy without an appropriate workup. Forty percent (40%) of people diagnosed as having idiopathic peripheral neuropathy are actually prediabetics.  This is because many physicians are unaware that prediabetes can cause peripheral neuropathy. In my experience, people diagnosed with idiopathic peripheral neuropathy often benefit from taking a high-bioactive potency form of vitamin B1.
