↑glucose most common: basis neuropathy; Google: "peripheral neuropathy etiology", yet many other associations exist, note word association; Why? Data about associations; mechanisms not fully understood. Cholesterol is part of every animal cell, enables cell membrane flexibility & has never been correct issue despite promotioin by NIH.gov as surrogate for Lipoproteins. Hi odds stress/anger/fear an issue; more complex.
