  • Metanx for type 1 diabetes

    Metanx is a prescription drug uses for type 1 diabetes to help with neuropathy. I rarely have symptoms of neuropathy anymore. Only if my blood sugar gets really low or high in the night but that is rare. It's described as medical food. It looks to be a high potency B vitamin complex.

    I found this on diabetes site-

    As a prescription vitamin, Metanx® is used to supplement the diet in people with symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy or people with abnormally high levels of homocysteine in the blood. It is considered a "medical food," rather than a prescription medicine. Medical foods are products that are made to help manage certain medical conditions with specific dietary needs.

    This combination vitamin comes in one form and strength: Metanx 3-35-2 mg tablets. The ingredients in each Metanx tablet include:

    •3 mg of L-methylfolate (a form of folic acid)
    •35 mg of pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (a form of vitamin B6)
    •2 mg of methylcobalamin (a form of vitamin B12).

    Any red flags on this?
