What is polyneuropathy?

With a polyneuropathy (poly = many, neuropathy = nerve disease) several peripheral nerves are damaged. The disease can cause different symptoms, but it can also be asymptomatic. Many of those affected suffer from symptoms such as numb or tingling feet, but pain is also common. The most common causes of polyneuropathy are diabetes mellitus and chronic alcohol abuse. Because: Increased blood sugar and alcohol can damage the nerves. A vitamin B1 deficiency can also cause polyneuropathy. Diabetics in particular have an increased risk of a vitamin B1 deficiency.

What does a vitamin B1 deficiency have to do with diabetes?

A study showed that the vitamin B1 concentration in the blood plasma of the examined diabetics was reduced by an average of 75 percent compared to healthy people. A vitamin B1 deficiency can, for example, trigger and worsen neuropathies (nerve damage) and cause sensory disorders such as tingling, burning and numbness in the feet. For diabetics, in addition to a good blood sugar control, the compensation of a vitamin B1 deficiency is particularly important. Vitamin B1 is also taken in through food. However, these amounts are often not enough to meet the increased needs of diabetics. The vitamin B1 precursor benfotiamine has the advantage that it can be absorbed 5 times better by the body than the "simple" vitamin B1 (thiamine).
