Peripheral neuropathy awareness wekis a period to share information about neuropathic pain. Peripheral neuropathy is a life-altering condition that can make the hands & feet painful
or tingling and can affect balance while walking.

Major causes include:

  • Diabetes 60%
  • Idiopathic 23%
  • Chemo-induced 10%
  • HIV/AIDS 2%
  • Others 5%

Diet rich in omega-3 fatty acid and antioxidants in fruits and vegetables can help reduce the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. Regular exercise can also help to reduce symptoms.

Avoiding gluten can sometimes help.
