Causes of Nerve Damage

Diabetes: Increases the risk of developing neuropathy as a result of high blood sugar level.

Ageing: Risk of nerve damage rises with age.

Lifestyle: Alcohol consumption, smoking, and/or an imbalanced diet – such as strict vegetarianism – may lead to a vitamin B-deficiency. B vitamins are important for maintaining healthy nerves.

Pressure on the nerves: Prolonged sitting and repetitive activities, such as typing and cooking, places nerves under unrelenting pressure. Likewise, the constant wearing of high heels. Trauma sustained from a motor vehicle accident, or injuries from a fall or playing sports, can also contribute to nerve damage.
