Neuropathy, also called peripheral neuropathy, refers to damage or dysfunction of the peripheral nerves, the nerves outside your central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Your peripheral nerves include:
The sensory nerves transmit information from the outside environment to your brain, like temperature, pressure, smell, and pain.
Your motor nerves carry signals from the brain to your muscles to coordinate movement.
The autonomic nerves help manage the body systems that perform functions without you having to think about it, like breathing, sweating, and digestion.
You can develop neuropathy from any number of causes, including injuries, nutritional deficiencies, or hormonal imbalances. However, diabetes and autoimmune disorders are common causes of neuropathy.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that occurs when your blood glucose levels are consistently higher than normal. Too much glucose in the blood damages the blood vessels, affecting the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to your nerves, leading to dysfunction and damage.
Autoimmune disorders are conditions in which the immune system mistakenly attacks parts of the body, like the peripheral nerve.
When treating neuropathy, the team at Texas Functional Health Centers focuses on finding the root cause of your nerve damage.
You can expect a thorough, patient-centered exam when you visit Texas Functional Health Centers for a neuropathy consultation. The team takes the time to get to know you and your journey so they can meet you where you’re at.
