In brief: Supportive
Autonomic neuropathy occurs when there is damage to the nerves that manage every day body functions such as blood pressure, heart rate, bowel and bladder emptying, and digestion.
Treatment is supportive. Several treatments may be attempted before a successful one is found. Check this out for more information: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com//health/autonomic-neuropathy/ds00544.

In brief: 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.
