What Are the Causes of Neuropathy in the Feet & Legs?

Share

Neuropathy is a medical term used to describe nerve damage that affects all regions of the body. There are several different types of neuropathies, each classified according to the affected area of the body. Neuropathy can be categorized as inherited, such as diabetic neuropathy, or acquired, resulting from trauma or injuries on the nerves. The symptoms for each type differ depending on the region but the majority of symptoms include tingling, loss of sensation, muscle weakeness, and pain.

Neuropathy can be caused by a variety of factors. Diabetes is an underlying condition that can cause many complications, including the development of neuropathy. Imbalances in the production of hormones can be a cause of leg and foot neuropathy. Also, nutritional deficiencies, alcoholism, and toxins can often lead to the development of this condition.
