Abstract

Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by multiple factors and manifest in various symptoms. It is often misdiagnosed if routine or time is lacking, particularly in primary care. Neurotropic B vitamins (B1, B6 and B12) are widely used to improve nerve function. This review summarizes the clinical use of neurotropic B vitamins in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy and B vitamin deficiency in Mexico and Central America and highlights the need of an early diagnosis and treatment of peripheral neuropathy. The content is based on an Advisory Board meeting in Mexico City in 2019 with the aim of better understanding the regional use of high-dose B vitamin products and developing a consensus statement providing guidance for healthcare professionals. Experts from multiple specialties and several Latin American countries, experienced in treating patients with peripheral neuropathy and B vitamin deficiency, gave insights on established regional practices in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy.
