This toolkit aims to support health care professions in supporting and managing those suffering with pain due to peripheral neuropathy. In the UK, diabetes (both Type 1 and 2) is the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy. Generally, the sooner that peripheral neuropathy is diagnosed the lower the chance of developing serious complications. Where guidelines have included both assessment and management, the guideline link will be posted in both sections.
This section provides links to useful information to support self management in people who live with neuropathic pain.
