According to several studies, the current rate of neuropathy among people with diabetes is between 20% and 30%. May 16–20 is “Talk Neuropathy” week, and to help raise awareness of the condition, the Neuropathy Association is hosting a series of interviews with celebrity guests, including Reverend Mother Dolores Hart, writer Sarah Manguso, and journalist Pia Lindström. As part of the effort, they are asking for your help in sending questions to ask their guests. The Neuropathy Association will choose 10 to feature in their interview and publication for “Talk Neuropathy” week.
To find out more about neuropathy, or to participate in this campaign, you can visit the “Talk Neuropathy” page. You can e-mail your question — along with your name, city, and state — to [email protected] with the subject line “Ask Your Question for Talk Neuropathy.” The Neuropathy Association hopes that by creating a dialogue and raising national consciousness about the condition, they can get everyone talking about neuropathy.
