In brief: Diabetic neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy has no known cure, even when blood sugar is in control.
Fortunately, there are treatments for diabetic neuropathy. The treatment mainly focuses on slowing progression of the disease, relieving pain, and restoring function.

In brief: Not usually

Good diabetic control can reduce neuropathy but is rarely curable unless blood sugar control is perfect which is rare.

In brief: Unfortunately no

Diabetic nerve problems unfortunately have very little to do with sugar and more to do with Nitric Oxide effects on small blood vessels to the nerves.
Yes, excellent control of sugar is imperative, but not the total answer.
