Treatment for Neuropathy

Treatment plans are determined by the origin of the neuropathy.  Since neuropathy has such a wide range of symptoms and causes, it can be treated in a vast range of different ways.

If the neuropathy is caused by alcohol abuse, the treatment is to avoid alcohol. If peripheral neuropathy is caused by a certain medication, other medications can be prescribed. In the case of diabetic neuropathy, careful monitoring of blood sugar can decrease the symptoms of neuropathy. Although neuropathy is usually not cured, it can be managed by a well thought out plan of action.

There are a number of medications that are helpful and your physician can determine which will be the most beneficial for the particular neuropathy. Some patients have experienced success in alleviating symptoms with natural remedies and vitamin therapy. The most important treatment for neuropathy is to have a thorough evaluation by your physician or a neurologist to have all the facts to evaluate your treatment options.
