Peripheral HIV Neuropathy and Its Causes

There is an image to translate the pain

Peripheral neuropathy and its causes.

See, I have peripheral polyneuropathy! I am still not broken, but I am no longer the efficient person I was! And the frustration was and is so great that I tried to understand and, therefore, researched! HIV itself can generate this. But you can take different paths than mine, prevent damage! I didn't know that such a thing was possible! And I don't have it, nobody has it, how to make the wheel go counterclockwise.

Peripheral neuropathy, reader, reader, is a problem of many

Closing your eyes and ears is your problem.

What I can do is inform you, give you ideas, warnings, some "instructions".

This is my idea when exposing unpleasant facts. Does positive thinking help? Yes.

But it is action that determines facts. There is no point in having positive thinking and not vaccinating your children against polio. If it happens, nothing can solve that. Nature's laws, the laws of God, exist for everyone and if He heals, it is also true that He instituted medicine!

Does it seem sensible to you?

Yes? Great!

Not? Too bad, this is your problem for you. My role, I tried to do!

Peripheral Neuropathy has a copious source of causes. And it can be controlled, perhaps avoided, or at least delayed. it's up to you to follow one way or the other.

Besides, it will always be your problem for you. And not with me

Can peripheral neuropathy be treated? Yes!

And when researching and discovering, unfortunately, the causes of neuropathy, there are many, and multiple and that the causes of peripheral neuropathy can be combined with each other and that it was not, and unfortunately, not a privilege of mine (…) have peripheral neuropathy.

Because I felt sad for everyone and thought: Before it was in a few!

My neuro (who became a “little friend” and got a nickname) is very specific, with a cause of long-term HIV infection (I would prefer a route, but….).

And I ended up developing a severe peripheral polyneuropathy, which even regressed, thanks to the house of Caridade Nova Aurora, in Alagoas, and the help of Dr. Bezerra de Menezes, whom I trust, based in the Faith I Have in God, since not even a leaf of a tree falls without Your Permission, but that my little friend is very complicated!

Other reasons for Peripheral Neuropathy

Diabetes is certainly the biggest and most common cause of peripheral neuropathy in the UK.

And so, it is very likely, I tell you who read me, that it is also so in Brazil; and if not, it still clarifies many and many in a big way!

The big problem I face is not knowing good sources of material in Portuguese that allow their content to be used, and I end up going to get good information from around the world! 😉 This addendum ends here.

Neuropathy can also be caused by other health conditions and certain medications; and in some cases, when no cause can be identified this is called idiopathic neuropathy.

Diabetes as a cause of peripheral neuropathy

As I noted above, peripheral neuropathy can be caused by type 1 diabetes, or type 2 diabetes and is usually called diabetic polyneuropathy. It is probably caused by high blood sugar levels, damaging the small blood vessels that supply your nerves.
The same peripheral neuropathy becomes more likely as the years of experience with diabetes grow.

Up to 1 in 4 people with diabetes experience some pain caused by nerve damage. If you have diabetes, your risk of polyneuropathy is higher if your blood sugar is poorly controlled or if you:

  • Smokes regularly;
  • You are over 40 years old.

If you have diabetes, check your feet regularly for sores or open wounds (ulcers) or chilblains.

More Influences That Lead to Peripheral Neuropathy

Other health conditions:

Sharing a childhood memory about Diabettes

Well, I'm going to share with you something that I told Mara and she, let's say, “Cracked the beak”, (Titia Arl1, meant that Mara laughed a lot!).

Well. When I was a child, yes, I was a child one day.

Yes I went! It was not a nice childhood. Screw it! I'm here, alive!

And around the age of eight, maybe seven, I heard my mother talking to a neighbor, I don’t know, I know she talked to someone about “Diabetes”, that it did a lot of harm I don't know who,  that Diabetes was complicated, boring, caused many health problems.

But in my foolishness, I understood “imp” and, like my own mother, giving me a corrective slap session had called me for goblin, this fact made me panic!

I left the French house and disappeared, as we always did, children of the seventies until the sunset, with its reddish sky customary in those days, which rendered a photo session on social media as something almost new!

Clarifying Diabetes and Urchins

I never touched on the subject with D. Helena, a kind of “preventive silence” and only after the age of 18, when, somehow, I resuscitated, I thought about it again, because finally someone told me diabettes and I told her the Following:

-"Then the) that's it! ” And I told the story to that friend from ancient and old times, who laughed, laughed, laughed, laughed and laughed a lot!

And I laughed too !!! and laughed a lot !!!!

Reader friends learn:

The shortest way to a lady's concessions and favors is this, to make them happy, to lead them to frank and unarmed laughter do that and you will see.

But, don't be like me. Use the blessed condom!

This is the only place on the entire planet that I declare such a thing. Learn to use, use well, with which you choose to spend your years of life with her. Don't be stupid as I was !!!
