Neuropathy Alliance of Texas
Who is affected by neuropathy? And how does NATX help?
Chances are that you know someone who has neuropathy, but you may not realize it. About 40 million Americans suffer from neuropathy; that translates into about 2.3 million Texans, with 166,000 people in the Austin metro area alone. That’s more people than those with Parkinson's, HIV, and Alzheimer's COMBINED. Many people, however, do not understand the causes of their symptoms and never receive a timely, or even accurate, diagnosis. Founded in late 2010 by two caregivers who chanced upon each other, Neuropathy Alliance of Texas (formerly known as “Hands Feet & Heart”) seeks to provide neuropathy patients and their caregivers the information, support, resources and hope that had not existed for its founders. Although there is currently no cure for this neurological disorder, NATX provides the tools its members need to “Live Well with Neuropathy”.
