FPN Educational Brochures


Peripheral neuropathy is the manifestation of many different conditions that can damage the peripheral nerves and is considered a neurological disorder rather than one distinct disease. Peripheral neuropathy may be either inherited or acquired.

Learn about peripheral neuropathy causes, symptoms, treatment options and much more. “Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy” is a perfect brochure for newly diagnosed patients, family members, care givers and support groups. Order copies by emailing info@tffpn.org [20] or print your own (and select print option “print to fit”).

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy describes a family of nerve disorders that are directly caused by complications from diabetes. Learn more about the most common type of PN.



In order to achieve its mission, FPN initiated the creation of the Peripheral Neuropathy Research Registry (PNRR) which will facilitate both the basic and clinical research studies needed for an improved understanding of the causes and development of PN. Learn more about the Registry and how to enroll.

If you are interested in acquiring our brochures for your clinics or offices please contact us at (847) 883-9942 or info@tffpn.org [20].
