Answer

Patients with diabetes who develop neuropathy should see a neurologist early in the course of neuropathy. Patients with neuropathy symptoms or signs that seem out of proportion to the severity of diabetes should be evaluated by a neurologist to help exclude other underlying causes of neuropathy.
