Synopsis

Peripheral neuropathy affects up to twenty million people in the United States. This condition has numerous causes, but can be associated with diseases such as HIV, alcoholism, and lupus, and may result from treatments for other medical conditions, such as cancer chemotherapy. More than half of all people with diabetes live with this very painful condition. Symptoms include pain, numbness, loss of balance, and tingling or burning in the extremities. Although this is a widespread condition, most people don't know about it, and when diagnosed find it difficult to obtain information. Written by a doctor and a patient-expert, "You Can Cope With Neuropathy: 365 Tips to Living a Full Life" is a welcome addition to the published literature on this subject. This book covers such diverse topics as: what to ask at doctor appointments; making the house easier to navigate with neuropathy; where to find a support group; using vitamins and herbs for treatment; tips for traveling; and, much, much more! "You Can Cope With Neuropathy" is a compendium of tips, techniques, and life-task shortcuts that will help millions of people who live with this painful condition. It will also serve as a useful resource for their families, caregivers, and health care providers.
