for several autoimmune disorders, including type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis."

About Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common diseases affecting approximately 20 million Americans.

Neuropathy results from injury to the peripheral nerves---the motor, sensory and autonomic nerves connecting the spinal cord to the muscles, skin, blood vessels and internal organs. It usually affects the hands and feet, causing weakness, numbness, lack of coordination or pain.

Approximately 30% of neuropathies are "idiopathic," meaning of an unknown cause; 30% are caused by diabetes. Other causes include autoimmune disorders, tumors, heredity, nutritional deficiencies, infections, trauma, and drugs or toxins.

About The Neuropathy Association

The Neuropathy Association(R), the leading national patient-based nonprofit organization, was established in 1995 by people with neuropathy and their families and friends to help those who suffer from disorders of the peripheral nerves. Now a national organization with over 50,000 members and supporters, 12 Association-designated neuropathy centers and 130 support groups, the Association's mission is to provide patient support and education, advocate for patients' interests, and find a cure for neuropathy.
