Learn About Peripheral Neuropathy - Welcome


If you’re suffering from peripheral neuropathy, you’re not alone. More than 20 million people in the United States, many over the age of 60, suffer from peripheral neuropathy. It affects men and women equally. Unfortunately, many cases are misdiagnosed and treatment is generally suboptimal. Nevertheless, with proper treatment, the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy can often be managed and sometimes eliminated.

The goal of this site is to be a central information resource to give patients up-to-date information on the diagnosis, treatment options, tests, and tools for living with peripheral neuropathy.
