Neuropathy

Circulatory System

Thousands of people suffer from neuropathy. This condition is a collection of disorders that occurs when nerves of the part of the nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord, known as the peripheral nervous system are damaged. Generally referred to as peripheral neuropathy. This happens due to damage to nerve axons, and usually causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet. Traumatic injuries, metabolic disorders, infections, and exposure to toxins are all possible causes, but one of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes.

Nervous System

Neuropathy affects both the motor nerves that control muscle movement, and the sensory nerves that detect sensations such as coldness or pain. It is also possible for autonomic neuropathy to affect internal organs including the heart, bladder, blood vessels and intestines.

Peripheral neuropathy gives off a pain described as a burning/tingling sensation. While neuropathy is typically associated with poor nutrition, diabetes and other diseases, and pressure or trauma, there have been many cases of idiopathic neuropathy, which has no known cause.

In the United States, about 20 million people, including more than half of all diabetics, suffer from neuropathy.
