From Illinois, USA:

I am really concerned about a friend that has diabetes. Is there any way you can help prevent peripheral neuropathy or autonomic neuropathy to occur at the age of 13?


Neuropathy is virtually unheard of in children. For the future: control the diabetes; keep the A1c in good control.
