Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
