Even though it seems like a “new” condition, peripheral neuropathy has been around for years; although hadn’t been properly diagnosed until recently. It is commonly misdiagnosed as just a side effect of other diseases like diabetes, cancer and kidney failure. Unfortunately, the development of treatments for neuropathy has been slow going.

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?
Neuropathy can be caused by many things, but more than 30 percent of those diagnosed with it are told it is from an unknown cause. Diabetes causes another 30 percent of cases. The remainder of cases are caused by autoimmune disorders, toxins, infections, tumors, heredity or imbalances of nutrition.
Neuropathy affects the nerves throughout the body, which control sensations like cold or pain, as well as the internal organs like the heart, bladder, intestines and more! It usually gives off a pain described as burning or tingling in the hands and feet.
