Can nerve damage be reversed?

To some extent, yes. If you take action early, before symptoms become severe, nerves damaged by peripheral neuropathy or other factors can regain some of their lost function. Healthy eating with plenty of vital nutrients, regular exercise, and carefully managing your sugar levels (especially if you have diabetes) have all shown some ability to nourish and heal struggling nerves.

However, significant nerve damage with more severe symptoms is usually permanent. That’s why it’s important to seek professional treatment and make healthier choices as soon as you notice that something is wrong. Set up an appointment with Dr. Danciger for a full evaluation, any necessary treatment (such as laser therapy or prescription medications), and advice on healthy lifestyle habits that can help you prevent future complications.
