Prognosis of Diabetic neuropathy


About prognosis: The 'prognosis' of Diabetic neuropathy usually refers to the likely outcome of Diabetic neuropathy. The prognosis of Diabetic neuropathy may include the duration of Diabetic neuropathy, chances of complications of Diabetic neuropathy, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Diabetic neuropathy, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Diabetic neuropathy. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.

Prognosis for Diabetic neuropathy: Prognosis for diabetic neuropathy depends largely on management of diabetes, the underlying condition. Treating the diabetes may halt progression and improve symptoms of the neuropathy, but recovery is slow. The painful sensations of diabetic neuropathy may become severe enough to cause depression in some patients. 1
