09 Jul 3 Common Types of Peripheral Neuropathy
1) Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral nerve damage as a result of diabetes is referred to as Diabetic Neuropathy. Diabetic patients who have elevated blood sugar (glucose) for extended periods of time cause damage to their peripheral nerves.
The most common location of peripheral nerve damage is in their feet and legs.
Diabetic neuropathy symptoms and functional changes are progressive in with as high blood sugar continues to cause damage to the peripheral nerves.
Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy will vary depending on the type of diabetic neuropathy you have acquired.
The life altering complication of diabetic neuropathy is very serious and affects 60%-70% of people with diabetes.
2) Compression/Entrapment Peripheral Neuropathy
Physical trauma or injuries, such as car accidents, falls, sports injuries, and repetitive stress syndromes account for one third of peripheral neuropathy cases.
Bulged and Herniated Disc(s)
Mechanical causes of peripheral neuropathy are very common, and are most often a result of mechanical joint problems, which compress the nerves that emit from the spine.
In mechanical compressive forms of peripheral neuropathy, the direct physical pressures placed on the nerves by aberrant joint function shuts down the flow of O2 and nutrients to the nerves.
3) Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN)
Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) is a negative side effect of Chemotherapy drugs and treatments. Chemotherapies and different kinds of cancer treatments often damage the healthy peripheral nerves in the body in charge of sensory (sensations) functions and motor (movements) functions of your hands, arms, legs, feet, and organs functions, such as, bladder and bowel control resulting in Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN).
Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) is most commonly a sensory neuropathy but may be a combination with motor and autonomic functional changes with various degrees of intensity and duration. Chemotherapy often causes damage of peripheral sensory and motor nerves resulting in a number of symptoms and functional problems.
Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) is a major complication for cancer patients due to its high prevalence among people treated with Chemotherapies.
