Is Peripheral Neuropathy Linked with Diabetes?

Q:

Is peripheral neuropathy linked with diabetes?

A:

Peripheral neuropathy is the most commonly-seen complication of diabetes. About 60%-70% the diabetics will finally develop peripheral neuropathy, but this nerve damage is not unavoidable. People can reduce the possibility of developing such damage by maintaining their glucose levels within the normal ranges, or as close to the normal as possible.

 

Nerves are damaged by chronically high blood sugar levels damage and thus those nerves cannot effectively communicate messages between the brain and other body parts
