Nutrition-related peripheral neuropathies
Nutrition-related neuropathies include neuropathies that result from either vitamin or mineral deficiency or toxicity. Vitamins and minerals that are most important for peripheral nerve function include the B vitamins (B1, B6, folate, and B12), vitamin E, and copper, the mineral. Early identification of these entities is important as their clinical course may be stabilized or reversed by adequate treatment.
