From Iowa, USA:

I am fighting neuropathy and I'm getting scared. When they tell you that you have diabetic neuropathy, does that mean you have diabetes?


If someone said you have "diabetic neuropathy," it would mean to me that you've already been had a diagnosis of diabetes for many years. If you don't already have a diagnosis of diabetes, ask the doctor for an explanation of what he/she means.

More information about diabetic neuropathy can be found at Diabetic Neuropathy.
