Neuropathy is a disease of the Peripheral Nerves. Nerves originate from the brain and through the spinal cord they go to all parts of the body. The nerves which are away from the brain and the spinal cord are called peripheral nerves. Damage to the peripheral nerves affects sensation, movement or functioning of the organs and the disease is called peripheral neuropathy or simply neuropathy.
Neuropathy may cause painful cramps, muscle or bone loss, impaired balance, numbness to touch or vibration, reduced sensitivity to temperature or pain. One of the most common causes of neuropathy is uncontrolled diabetes, though some surgeries and medications are also known to have caused neuropathy. The causes of neuropathy can be many and finding the root cause of neuropathy is the first challenge for your doctor to provide the right treatment.
Neuropathy is best diagnosed through clinical examination and some tests like Electro Encephalogram (EEG) and Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) Test are widely used for diagnosing Peripheral Neuropathy disease.
Once the root cause of neuropathy is established then treating the root cause is the best way of treating neuropathy. If the neuropathy is caused due to uncontrolled diabetes then maintaining good sugar control is the key to treat neuropathy. Neuropathy which is caused due to Vitamin Deficiency is treated by using Vitamin supplements to keep the vitamin levels in the adequate range. Similarly the neuropathy which is caused by immunity related diseases, the right line of treatment is the use of steroids to raise the immunity levels. TENS therapy is widely used to treat the neuropathic pain but the treatment remains effective only till it is being done and the pain returns after stopping this treatment.
The cost of treating neuropathy is not significant as the underlying conditions are mostly lifestyle related and require more determination than bags of money. Good Diet and regular exercise is the key to maintaining good blood sugar levels rather than expensive prescription drugs.
