Neuropathy is a medical term for damage caused in peripheral nerves. Almost 30% cases of neuropathy can be attributed to diabetes. The balance 70% can be an aftermath of nerve injury, poor nutrition, specific health conditions and infections. Neuropathy will not be restricted to nerves alone. Often, the latent damage will percolate to the muscles, joints, bones and even certain organs in extreme cases. Recognisable non diabetic neuropathy symptoms can be many and they will largely depend on the part of the body that has been affected. A list of common symptoms, however, can always be arrived at.
Non diabetic neuropathy symptoms must always be managed with specific care. Timely monitoring will be warranted for effective management of the illness. Depending on the intensity, neuropathy can compromise one’s quality of life to a large extent.
