Damage to the nerves can be the result of an injury that damages the spinal cord or causes the bones to heal abnormally. Diabetes is another primary cause of neuropathy. The fluctuation of blood glucose levels can prevent the nerves from getting the nutrients they need to function properly. If they’re continually deprived of what they need to remain healthy, the resulting damage can lead to diabetic neuropathy.
