Default Alcohol Induced neuropathy

So one possible cause of my SFN could be alcohol - I used to drink quite a lot leading up to it and for years, mostly beer. I was never an alcoholic in terms of dependency, but it was a lot. I find it somewhat worrisome hearing some of the passing comments on this PN forum about the prognosis and potential for improvement of alcohol induced neuropathy. Is it that bad and universally so?

As soon as I found out that alcohol could even potentially be the cause - none of the physicians said so, I just did research - I dropped the alcohol and haven't touched it for months.

More and more I think that it's diet related or general health, since I have reactions to sugar and carbs, but of course what else is alcohol, in particular beer, than that?
