Although peripheral neuropathy is often the result of another disorder, there are measures you can take to help prevent it. First, it is important to treat and properly manage all other conditions that may cause peripheral neuropathy. Also, peripheral neuropathy is linked to too little B-12 vitamin, so make sure to eat foods that contain B12 or take B12 supplements. Finally, work-related stress can cause peripheral neuropathy, so avoid repetitive movements and positions that force you to slouch.

What is a level of consciousness?
Level of consciousness is a term used to describe a person's awareness and understanding of what is happening in his or her surroundings. There are three main levels of consciousness:
Consciousness is an awake state, in which a person is fully aware of his or her surroundings and understands, talks, moves and responds normally.
Decreased consciousness is a state in which a person appears to be awake and aware of surroundings (conscious) but is not responding normally. While in a state of decreased consciousness, a person may not answer when spoken to, stare straight ahead and have no facial expression. Others may think the person is acting confused, odd or sleepy. Later, the person may not be able to recall what happened.
Unconsciousness is a state in which a person is not aware of what is going on and is not able to respond normally to things that happen to and around him or her.
- Fainting is a brief form of unconsciousness.
- Coma is a deep, prolonged state of unconsciousness.
- General anesthesia is a controlled period of unconsciousness.

What are neuroinformatics?
Discovery Health answered
Neuroinformatics collects information available on the brain and places it on the Internet in a form that is usable. The data include models of neuron behavior, images and maps of the genes that are "turned on" in different brain regions. By making the data searchable and sharable, brain researchers can benefit from each other's work, which can lead to more discoveries.
