Answer

Autonomic neuropathy is associated with dizziness and falling with resultant injuries, nausea and vomiting, severe diarrhea, and dehydration, all of which can lead to hyperosmolar nonketotic diabetic coma or diabetic ketoacidosis and death. Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy can cause death.
