Nerve Damage in Hand
 

Nerve damage in hand can influence its proper working. Here’s additional about the causes, side effects, and treatment choices that are accessible.

Nerves in the body do the essential capacity of transmission of messages between the mind and different parts of the body. On the whole, there are three unique sorts of nerves in the body. They are autonomic nerves, engine nerves, […]

Peripheral Neuropathy Affecting Intimacy

How Does Peripheral Neuropathy Affects Intimacy? Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that causes damages to peripheral nerves that connect with the central nervous system, causing a disruption in the transmission of information round trip from and to the central nervous system and the area of the body affected. Among the most common problems but not limited to these there is the inability to feel sensations, moving, dysfunctional organs and glands, all this depending upon the affected nerve. [...]

Nutritional Neuropathies

Nutritional neuropathies occur as the result of poor nutrition, particularly if there is a deficiency of certain B vitamins. All of the B vitamins are important for normal nerve function. Thiamine (B1) is commonly found in enriched breads, pasta, and cereal. Thiamin deficiency may occur in alcoholism, anorexia, or bulimia. Neuropathy can also occur in people who are deficient in Vitamin B6 or Vitamin B12. Vitamin B6 is found in meat, beans, greens, fish, and whole grains.

Effects of Stress in Patients living with Neuropathy

Stress and Neuropathy   Peripheral neuropathy involves the nerves transporting information from the periphery to the central nervous system (spinal cord and brain), in both ways. For better understanding, peripheral nerves tell the brain about the sensation of heat or cold in their zone (each nerve has a corresponding zone) and the brain responds, for example, in the face of extreme heat, with a movement away from that zone, so as to avoid a burn.

Myelin Layer

The myelin layer is a white fatty and protein covering that insulates and protects a nerve fiber. The concept of myelin can be thought of as similar to the insulating coatings that typically surround electrical wiring. Just like insulators are needed to protect electrical wires, myelin is needed to protect our nerve fibers which incidentally, conduct electrical current also. Myelin is made up of roughly about 80% fat, and about 20% protein. [...]
