In brief: YEs
Studies have shown that B12 supplementation have been proven to help with sympots associated with diabetic neuropathy.
I would suggest going to eastpennfoot.Com for more information at diabetes foot and ankle center for more information.

In brief: Yes but.....
Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage and therefore can never be 100% restored.
To improve and prevent further deterioration diet and exercise is the key. Keep blood sugars under control. Stop smoking (affects circulation to nerves) limit alcohol use which destroys nerves. Vit. B may levels should be checked and supplemented as required but it won't work by itself.
