What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that develops as a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system - the vast communications network that transmits information between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and every other part of the body. Peripheral neuropathy distorts and sometimes interrupts messages between the brain and spinal cord and the rest of the body. It is estimated 20 million people in the United States have some form of Peripheral Neuropathy.

Know the Neuropathy Symptoms

Neuropathy Nerve Damage
Peripheral neuropathy can result from problems such as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins.
One of the most common causes is diabetes.

Poor blood circulation may also be a major contributing factor that leads to neuropathy.
Diabetics are especially susceptible to neuropathy due to the damage high sugar levels may inflict on the small vessels responsible for delivering blood to the nerves. High glucose levels are believed to adversely affect the amount of oxygen provided to the nerves thus leading to neuropathy.

Neuropathy is a progressive condition. Early treatment is critical.
Neuropathy is a progressive condition, meaning it tends to get worse with time. If left untreated for too long, the nerve damage can reach a point where there is simply nothing that can be done. This is why early detection and treatment of peripheral neuropathy is critical to getting the best results.
