While Young Prevent Neurological Disorders

Neuropathy, nerve damage due to disease, trauma to the nerve, or the side effects of systemic illness can happen to anyone. Neuropathy generally occurs at the age of 40 years, when nerve function is decreasing. But it's not impossible you can be free of neuropathy, although the elderly.

Neurologist doctor from the Department of Neurology Faculty of Medicine, University Hospital Ciptomangunkusumo Indonesia (Faculty of medicine / RSCM) in Jakarta Manfaluthy judge said, the key is maintaining healthy nerves start early.

"If young age have started maintaining healthy nerves, it will be a small risk of neuropathy," he said in a news media entitled 'Vitamin neurotropic Prevent Early Neuropathy "by the Association of Physician Specialists Nerve Indonesia (Perdossi) Wednesday (04/03/2013 ) yesterday in Jakarta.

According to Luthy, one of the main causes of neuropathy is a shortage of supply of vitamin B which helps to protect and regenerate nerves. "The nerves we are very dependent on an adequate supply of vitamin B and is very sensitive to vitamin B deficiency," he said.

Supply of B vitamins can actually be fulfilled from the food consumed daily. Foods that contain a lot of vitamin B include beans, brown rice, and meat. But often, vitamin B absorption by the body is hampered because of unhealthy lifestyles, such as alcohol consumption.

So, to meet the body's need of vitamin B, if necessary supplemented with vitamin B supplements, vitamins neurotrophic one. Vitamin neurotrophic consists of vitamins B1, B2, and B12, and serves to maintain and normalize nerve function.

In addition to sufficient intake of vitamin B, Luthy said, preventing neuropathy should also be a healthy lifestyle.

"Strive for balanced nutrition, regular exercise, adequate rest to regenerate nerve cells," he said.

Luthy explained, the older it will naturally nerve function decline. But do not just resigned to the situation. By maintaining healthy nerves early on, then the risk of neurological disorders can certainly be minimized.

"Do not wait until there is nerve damage, due to nerve damage in need of repair time. Prevention neuropathy early response is very important and a lot better," said Chairman of the Study Group on Neurophysiology and Neural this Perdossi edges.
