I’ve never heard of that either. At least in conjunction with CIDP.

Having said that, there is this: “Refined grains are high-glycemic, meaning they have a dramatic impact on your blood sugar. According to the Neuropathy Association, glycemic control is the No. 1 strategy for preventing the progression of neuropathy associated with diabetes, which is one of the most common causes.”

And then, “According to the Mayo Clinic, a healthy diet may help prevent or reduce symptoms of neuropathy for those at greatest risk.” Vitamin B-Rich Foods for example.

Reckon this means to make sure your blood sugar is under control. Check with your doctor on other things to look for that cause peripheral neuropathy.

There are probably peripheral neuropathy support groups in your area. For more on neuropathy resources go here:
