Item description for Peripheral Neuropathy: When the Numbness, Weakness, and Pain Won't Stop (American Academy of Neurology) by Norman Latov & Lisa M. Shulman...

Peripheral neuropathy affects 10 to 20 million people in the U.S, including ten per cent of all people who have diabetes. 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. Symptoms include pain, numbness, loss of balance, and tingling in the extremities. Although a widespread condition, most people don't know about it, and when diagnosed find it difficult to obtain information.

"Peripheral Neuropathy," by Norman Latov, Professor of Neurology at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University, explains what we know about neuropathy, including its causes and manifestations, and what can be done to manage it. Topics covered include:

The causes of peripheral neuropathy Drug therapy for the condition itself and for managing symptoms such as pain Interventional therapy Caring for your feet Personal accounts of people living with neuropathy Alternative medicines, and much more

This indispensable guide will help millions of people understand this condition so that they can take control of their lives and make informed decisions. In addition, it will be a useful resource for their families, caregivers, and health care providers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Peripheral Neuropathy: When the Numbness, Weakness, and Pain Won't Stop (American Academy of Neurology)?

Informative  Apr 16, 2008
Most of the information is available over the internet. It is good to have a lot of it in one book, but I would not re-read or recommend for purchase.
Peripheral Neuropathy Review  Mar 31, 2008
Book was purchased to better understand neuropathy which my mother has. The book helped alot.
Excellent resource  Nov 8, 2007
I bought this book for someone else who is suffering from diabetic neuropathy that is not responding well to treatment. This person said that the book is "excellent" and that it provided clear, comprehensive information that s/he wasn't able to find anywhere else (including internet sites). Highly recommended!
Neuropathy Understandable  Aug 24, 2007
Peripheral Neuropathy is a concise, inexpensive volume written in plain English. It will be useful to both neuropathy sufferers and their physicians alike.

Dr. Latov's expertise -- as a clinician, teacher, and a founder of The Neuropathy Association(www, -- is well-reflected in the text.

When both the doctor and the patient are able to discuss neuropathy knowledgeably as a result of reading this work, the disease will be better understood and managed
Helpful  Jun 15, 2007
It was very informative. Author seemed very knowledgeable and credible. I learned new ideas for supplements to help my condition. Easy to read.
