Corinthian Reference Lab (CRL) is a commercial diagnostic laboratory specializing in neurological disease detection, particularly small fiber neuropathy testing. Based in Fort Worth, TX, we specialize exclusively in epidermal nerve fiber density (ENFD) testing. ENFD testing offers medical practitioners and their patients objective evidence of a neuropathy which can hopefully lead to a more accurate diagnosis of fibromyalgia, dysautonomia, or other types of small fiber neuropathy.
Small fiber peripheral neuropathy is a type of peripheral neuropathy that occurs from damage to the small unmyelinated peripheral nerve fibers, which are found in skin, peripheral nerves, and organs. Although there are many possible causes of small fiber neuropathy, the most common is diabetes or glucose intolerance. These fibers supply the skin with nerves and help control autonomic functions. Although symptoms of small fiber neuropathy vary widely, it’s usually first accompanied by pain, numbness, discomfort in the hands and feet, or an insensitivity to pain. Because small fiber neuropathy can relate to a range of health conditions, please see our FAQ pages for more information on how CRL’s small fiber neuropathy testing can help diagnose a patient’s specific condition.
