I know we just had a discussion on Vitamin B1 but I can't find it. And now I have a question. I wrote to my PCP with this result:
What Dr. Wolf (PCP) is talking about is what I am already taking.
I am not familiar with what you are discussing. The B vitamins are not available in prescription form. It is available over the counter as separate supplements however. You may want to try that.
My message to Dr. Wolf: Both you and Dr. Hasani have said that I needed extra Vitamin B1 and B12 so I bought the Nature's Way vitamins sold in the KP pharmacy. Now I am told by experts on Diabetic Connect that my multivitamin with Thiamine and the Nature's Way Vitamin B1 are not enough to prevent complications. The extra B1 that I am taking is water soluble. Diabetics excrete this form of B1, 25 times faster than non diabetics. The Benfotiamine form has been made to be fat soluble. The fat soluble form makes it possible for diabetics to retain it. The dose is quite high at least at first. Is this a prescription form? If so, could you write me a prescription for it? If not, I did not see that they sell it in KP pharmacy, so where would I get it?
Sorry to have started a new discussion on the same category but I really could not find it although I know that RosalieM started it and I trust what she says.
