Mayo Clinic Study – Prediabetes Does Not Mean Neuropathy

Every once in a while we all need to rethink what we have learned or come to expect. So it is with prediabetes and neuropathy. A recent study conducted by Mayo Clinic researchers states that people with prediabetes are no more likely to have nerve damage termed small fiber polyneuropathy than people in good health. The point being made is that this goes against two decades of medical reports. This is interesting!

According to the lead author, "It is highly unlikely that impaired glucose or associated metabolic derangements cause polyneuropathy, at least not to the high frequency previously reported."
