Types of Neuropathy

For more information about types of Neuropathy, refer to our section on types of Neuropathy.

About prevalence:

The medical term 'prevalence' of Neuropathy usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Neuropathy at any given time, whereas the annual diagnosis rate of new cases of Neuropathy is called the 'incidence'. For more information on prevalence and incidence statistics, see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
