In brief: Yes and No

Diabetic neuropathy is nerve damage and therefore can never be 100% restored.
To improve and prevent further deterioration diet and exercise is the key. Keep blood sugars under control. Stop smoking (affects circulation to nerves) limit alcohol use which destroys nerves. Vit. B may levels should be checked and supplemented as required.

In brief: Good control

Good blood sugar control is required for it to resolve.
However, the longer the process went on before you get the sugar under control, the less likely complete resolution is to occur.
