Live Well: Neuropathy

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 12:00 pm to 12:30 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Janice Wiesman MD, FAAN
Description: At least 20 million people in the United States suffer from peripheral neuropathy.  Regardless of the cause, relief of symptoms including pain, tingling, autonomic dysfunction and weakness is important to maintain function and quality of life. Given that symptomatic treatments do not "repair" neuropathy, that this may be a lifelong problem and that people with neuropathy often are taking medications for other illnesses, an approach that does not use oral medication may be best.  I will discuss symptomatic treatments of neuropathy that do not involve the use of oral medications. I will also address the usefulness of treatments advertised on the Internet, including devices and supplements.
