Peripheral Neuropathy Prevention

Prevention

  • Manage chronic medical conditions with the help of your doctor. If you have diabetes, visit a podiatrist for yearly exams.
  • Eat a healthful diet , one that is low in saturated fat and rich in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables.
  • Be sure to get the right amounts of thiamin and vitamin B12.
  • Limit your alcohol intake to a moderate level. This means two or fewer drinks per day for men and one or fewer for women.
  • Avoid:
    • Toxic chemicals
    • Repetitive movements
    • Prolonged pressure on joints, especially elbows and knees
