Folinic-Plus - Vitamins B6, B9 & B12

Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy can be a common complication of diabetes and can be serious. Diabetics may have a higher risk for peripheral neuropathies due to nerves being damaged by high blood glucose levels and high levels of fats. In addition, studies and case reports suggest that a portion of patients who take a popular diabetic medication have reduced vitamin B12 absorption. Folinic-Plus contains vitamins B6, B9, & B12.


Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy generally affect the legs and feet and can more rarely affect hands and arms. Symptoms include:

  • Tingling
  • Numbness – which can become permanent
  • Burning sensation – which may increase in the evening
  • Increase sensitivity to touch
  • Pain

Symptoms usually develop gradually. However, some people may not notice an issue until considerable nerve damage has been done.

60-70% of Diabetic patients will experience some form of Neuropathy.1
