About Diminished Nerve Function and Zobria®
Nutrient deficiency is common in people older than 65 years of age and likely causes the nerves in the feet and legs to function less successfully, causing numbness, tingling, burning, or shooting pains. One study found that these symptoms affect over 25% of people aged 65-75, and over 50% of people 85 years of age or older.
A recent study found 16% of people considered obese are deficient in certain nutrients with over one half of them suffering from numbness, tingling, burning, or pain in the feet and legs. Nutrient deficiency-induced diminished nerve function also affects about 1 in 5 of people after gastric bypass surgery.
