  • yes its very good information and thanks you b'coz share it with us.i would like a lots of information about Acute Diabetes. Hi, I do not have *acute diabetes*. There is a huge amount of information out there about diabetes, however, you should speak to a licensed professional concerning your inquiry.I am a diabetic that was injured. As a result, I have is a nerve condition, that was triggered by trauma. Nerves need to be fed nutrients and oxygen or they will die. My doctor said my condition should have improved a weeks after the injury, since it had not, he thinks I have *acute diabetic polyneuropathy*.

  • I'm afraid I don't know much about diabetic neuropathy however I know that with neuropathy in general B12 is supposed to help. You'll find a really good thread about B12 if you google "Active B12 Basics".I hope this info can help you.

  • Thank you for the reply fishex, however, I do not have `acute diabetes`. I am a diabetic with a nerve condition that was caused by trauma. My doctor said the condition should have gone away by now(a neuropraxia). Because it`s still with me, he is calling it, diabetic polyneuropathy.Thanks for the info April, My b12 and folate are on within normal limits. Is it possible to have too much b12?

  • My b12 and folate are on within normal limits. Is it possible to have too much b12?In the West normal levels of B12 are far too low at roughly 150-200. In Japan they start B12 injections if levels drop below 550.In the West it's thought that you can have too much B12 however those who suffer from the problem believe there's no such thing as an upper limit.
