Leigh’s disease does not have a known cure, but it is known that foods containing high levels of Vitamin B1 can help relieve the symptoms and decrease the severity of the disease’s effects. Peas are a wonderful source of Vitamin B1, and they are also easily accessible, palatable, and can be included in many different dishes. When combined with other thiamine-rich foods, this diet can make a marked difference in the quality of life for someone who is suffering from Leigh’s disease.
