Do you suffer from numbness or tingling pain in your legs and feet? Do you sometimes lose your balance?
If so, you might be experiencing the effects of peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral Neuropathy earned its name because it affects the peripheral portions of your body (your hands and feet) caused by having nerve damage in those areas. This peripheral nerve damage affects nearly 8 million people in the U.S., according to Science Daily.
You may experience neuropathy if you have suffered a physical trauma, such as been in a car accident, or have had a repetitive injury, or exposure to certain drugs. Neuropathy is most commonly found in people who have diabetes, so testing for neuropathy is a routine part of diabetes care, according to the experts.
While the medical community states that drugs exist for the treatment of symptoms – such as pain relievers – prescriptions do not exist for the condition itself, which can be caused by several different medical conditions (and even some treatments, such as chemotherapy).
New research being done
Today research is being conducted to develop drug therapies for the treatment of neuropathy at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, which is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institute. This institution is focused on increasing healthy lifespan and harnessing our natural ability to repair and regenerate tissues damaged by injury or disease.
Scientists have reported that peripheral neuropathies stem from multiple causes, but the research at MDI indicates that there may potentially be a common underlying mechanism for some neuropathies affecting the sensory nervous system that could be manipulated with drugs targeting a single enzyme.
MDI’s research may open the door to the development of therapeutic agents that can reverse nerve damage linked to chemotherapy, and possibly diabetes and other conditions.
