Neuropathy Conditions

Neuropathy, also known as nerve damage, can develop from a variety of conditions. When neurons are damaged, they are unable to communicate with one another. As a result, the brain cannot communicate with the nerves, making it difficult to do things that were once easy.

Neuropathy Conditions

Neuropathy is a condition that creates nerve damage in the body. Although the exact cause of neuropathy is unclear, there are certain conditions that may make an individual more susceptible to developing it. Neuropathy is commonly caused by nerve damage or diabetes because of high blood sugar which can lead to nerve damage. Individuals with chronic illnesses such as lupus, arthritis, and other autoimmune disorders can also cause neuropathy. 

Other common causes of neuropathy include:

  • Alcoholism
  • Genetics
  • Medications
  • Traumatic injuries

Types of Conditions

Autonomic Neuropathy

Damage to nerves that control autonomic bodily functions such as blood sugar, blood pressure, digestion, heart rate, or bowel movements.

Diabetic Neuropathy 

Neuropathy due to a diabetic condition that causes high blood sugar (glucose), which can lead to damaged blood vessels and nerves over time.

Focal Neuropathy

Focal neuropathy is a common form of neuropathy that refers to the compression of a specific nerve.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Nerve damage that is focused on the outside of the brain and near the peripheral nerves also known as the spinal cord. This can impact hand and feet circulation, and create weakness, numbness, or pain.

Proximal Neuropathy

Proximal neuropathy is a rare form of neuropathy that occurs when the nerves in your hips, thighs, or buttocks are damaged. It usually only affects one side of your body. Although only seen in rare cases, it can spread to both sides.
