Neuropathy, or destruction of peripheral nerves is a complication of diabetes that has recently been found to have an association with insulin-producing bone marrow cells. The research has isolated cells that directly attack nerve cells causing initial pain, followed by loss of sensation, and muscle weakness. Peripheral neuropathy progression results in amputation of digits and limbs. The discovery and further research will allow scientist to devise new, effective treatments to prevent this common diabetic complication.
