Answer

A study by Dabelea et al found that among teenagers and young adults who had been diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes during childhood or adolescence, the age-adjusted prevalence of peripheral neuropathy was greater in those with type 2 diabetes than in patients with type 1 diabetes (17.7% vs 8.5%, respectively). After modifications had been made for established risk factors measured over time, the odds ratio for peripheral neuropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes versus those with type 1 was 2.52. [32]
