There are so many causes of peripheral neuropathy that podiatrists see affecting the foot. The classic causes are diabetes, osteoporosis, alcohol, Vitamin B deficiencies, but we all know that there are many other causes.

It makes sense that anything that increases our overall inflammation could lead to neural inflammation and therefore, peripheral neuropathy.
