9781932603767: You Can Cope With Peripheral Neuropathy: 365 Tips for Living a Full Life

"Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common diseases most people never heard of and yet, upwards of 20 million Americans have it! It is estimated that 60 to 70 percent of people with diabetes have mild to severe neuropathy. That fact alone is staggering. Other causes include vitamin deficiencies, autoimmune diseases, kidney, liver or thyroid disorders, cancer and a variety of other medical conditions.

According to the Neuropathy Association the extent and importance of peripheral neuropathy has not yet been adequately recognized. The disease is apt to be misdiagnosed, or thought to be merely a side effect of another disease.  However, people from all walks of life live with this neurological illness that has been described by those who have it as a tingling or burning sensation in their limbs, pins and needles and numbness.

You Can Cope with Peripheral Neuropathy: 365 Tips for Living a Full Life was written by both a patient-expert and doctor and is a welcome addition to the information on this subject. It 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 Peripheral Neuropathy is a compendium of tips, techniques, and life-task shortcuts that will help everyone who lives with this painful condition. It will also serve as a useful resource for their families, caregivers, and health care providers.

Review:

"Mims Cushing, a professional writer, has PN; she offers her own experience and perspective on self-care...Every aspect of living is covered from coping at home, exercise, travel tips, and wellness, including positive thinking and how caregivers can help...[the book] has a helpful index, a glossary of acronyms, an extensive bibliography, and long list of associations whose work is related to PN. This book is highly recommended for all public and consumer health libraries." --CAPHIS, Medical Library Association

"The book offers the valuable perspectives of the authors, one a patient-expert and the other a physician who specializes in the treatment of PN. Full of patients' personal stories, 'You Can Cope with Peripheral Neuropathy' will help sufferers realize they are not alone and allow their loved ones to better understand the PN experience."--Stanford Health Library

"Packed with practical tips and insights unique to neuropathy, this bookshows patients and their families how to improve the quality of their lives."--The Neuropathy Association

"Cushing has lived with peripheral neuropathy for some 15 years and has published extensively in magazines and newspapers about her experiences. Dr. Latov is director of the Peripheral Neuropathy Clinical and Research Center at Cornell U.'s Weill Medical College. They present a practical guide for readers who have been recently diagnosed, were diagnosed with PN some time ago, or have experienced 'burning, tingling, stabbing pains in the feet' but not yet had a diagnosis. Combining Latov's medical expertise with Cushing's patient-expert knowledge, the text covers the basics of PN and provides tips on hand and foot care, exercise, making a home safe and comfortable, wellness strategies, hobbies and travel, working with caretakers, self-help groups, the patient-physician relationship, and PN research." - Book News

"...written in an entertaining, informal, even humorous style, and is easy to digest for patients and those who live with them." --Darien Times
