NOTE: This addition to the description is being added due to the possibility of bogus reviews implying that only one type of peripheral neuropathy is addressed within this book. While the far-most major cause is addressed, being that of diabetes and pre-diabetic conditions (metabolic syndromes), causes addressed also include: neuropathies affecting sensory, motor and autonomic nerves, polyneuropathy and mono-neuropathy, thyroid disease neuropathies, peripheral neuropathies of autoimmune and systemic diseases (e.g. Lupus, Celiac Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren's Syndrome, Peripheral Artery Disease), peripheral neuropathy of viral cause, also known as "Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy" (e.g. Cytomegalovirus, Epstein-Barr, Varicella Zoster, Hepatitis Viruses A, B, C, D, and E, Campylobacter Jejuni). Additionally, a chapter is dedicated to nutritional deficiencies -- literally from A to Z, that cause or contribute to neuropathies. Some estimates by medical research groups state that up to 20 million Americans suffer from some form of peripheral neuropathy (PN) and this number is much higher when worldwide statistics are considered. A major reason for the rise in incidence for these conditions of damage to the nerves in the body that results in pain and dysfunction in them is the increase in cases of diabetes and pre-diabetic syndromes. There are many other causes of PN however, including old age, viral infections, nutritional deficiencies, various autoimmune diseases, dysfunction of the arterial system (blood circulation) and drug-use of both prescribed types and varieties of illegal drugs. Within the chapters of this book, I address the types of symptoms involved in PN diseases, the types of nerves that can be affected and treatments that are administered to treat underlying causes of PN and to directly address its symptoms. NOTE: This book is approximately 5,779 words in length. It is not an extensive medical journal but rather contains aspects of information on the subject that most laypersons would be seeking. TABLE OF CONTENTS: CHAPTER ONE: My Personal Battle with Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) CHAPTER TWO: Nerve Damage from Diabetes and Metabolic Syndromes CHAPTER THREE: Other Systemic Diseases Associated with Development of PN CHAPTER FOUR: Viruses that Cause or Contribute to PN CHAPTER FIVE: Nutritional Deficiencies that Lead to PN CHAPTER SIX: Directly Addressing Symptoms of PN It is my sincere hope that this book will serve to gain its readers, a good general education on the subject of Peripheral Neuropathy.

About the Author

I am a husband, father, grandfather and lifetime contract salesman, with experience in health writing that began in 2004. I completed theological studies with Liberty University in 1996. I formerly served as editor and forum moderator of Thyroid Health for a major multi-topic content site and as a general health writer for another, where I achieved Editor's Choice Awards for my articles on health subjects. In 2003 I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism; "Hashimoto's thyroiditis" being the cause. This autoimmune form of thyroid disease that causes destruction of the thyroid gland resulted in my also developing "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome", due to a compromised immune system with severe co-morbid "Adrenal Fatigue". I also suffered severe anxiety symptoms, including panic attacks early into the onset of Hashimoto's thyroiditis (Hashitoxicosis). I was aso diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy and thyroid myopathy, with co-morbid nutritional deficiencies. My eventual receiving of diagnoses was a difficult process with proper diagnostic testing not being ordered by the first doctors I sought treatment from. These types of issues were inspiration for me to become proactive in my own health care and to self-educate myself on these health disorders, which I have done extensively since 2003. I now enjoy sharing this information with other patients experiencing my same health disorders.
