Ulcers and trauma: Autonomic neuropathy is complex and effects the skin, muscle, and bone..As well as the nerve processes. If you have no feeling in your feet, you may injure yourself. Lack of nerve stimulation can lead to bone loss and muscle loss over time and give you problems with walking and balance.
If the neuropathy comes from high blood sugar, you must decrease it to normal levels.
