Vegan Diet May Reduce Diabetic Nerve Pain

August 8, 2014

A low-fat vegan diet may reduce pain associated with
diabetic neuropathy, according to a presentation this
week at the American Association of Diabetes Educators
Annual Meeting in Orlando, Fla. In a randomized
controlled trial of 35 type 2 diabetes patients with
painful neuropathy, half followed a vegan diet and took a
vitamin B12 supplement for 20 weeks, while the other half
only took the supplement. The diet group showed greater
improvements in some pain measures and body weight, as
compared with the control group. This study demonstrates
the promise of a dietary approach to diabetic nerve pain
and other microvascular complications.
