Re: Numbness in feet?

Hi Loretta,

It's reasonable to make sure that numbness, which could be a symptom of peripheral neuropathy, isn't resulting from diabetic condition.

Vitamin B12 deficiency is fairly common & can result in similar symptoms. Some people have had wonderful improvement after taking sublingual B12, the methylcobalamin type, each day for a month to 6 weeks.

Best wishes.
