Often patients, family members or others suffering with peripheral neuropathy (of any cause) are being told nothing can be done for the symptoms. Others are given medications to decrease the symptoms. But the real question is can neuropathy truly be treated? Although neuropathy will not ever completely resolve (unless the cause is eliminated), and neuropathy is usually progressive throughout life, there are treatments that can keep neuropathy from progressing and keep symptoms in check throughout life. One such treatment would be the use of vitamin supplements to treat neuropathy. Our recommendation is that this should only be done under direction of your physician and after careful evaluation of your nutrition status.
