Magnesium For Nerveneuropathy

The One Essential Mineral For Nerve Growth Researchers have found magnesium supplements have actually aided in regrowing damaged nerve cells. They performed scientific tests where mice were split into three groups and fed low, normal or high-magnesium diets. The mice given food with magnesium supplements displayed marked improvement in neurobehavioral abilities electrophysiological functions enhanced signs of nerve regeneration reduced deposits […]

High-Cost Neuropathy Screening

Are you paying too much for neuropathy screening? Researchers at the University of Michigan found that less expensive, more effective tests are less likely to be used than the costlier ones. Almost one-quarter of patients receiving neuropathy diagnoses undergo high-cost, low-yield MRIs while very few receive low-cost, high-yield glucose tolerance tests, according to the study […]

Blood-nerve barrier model allows closer look at diseases affecting peripheral nerves

The cells regarded as the “gate-keepers” of the barrier between blood circulation and the peripheral nerves have been hard to study and even harder to isolate. However, researchers at Baylor College of Medicine have created a laboratory model that will enable scientists to study a wide variety of diseases affecting peripheral nerves. They describe their […]
