Answer

In addition to tests performed to evaluate or diagnose diabetes, lumbar puncture results may show elevated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) proteins, sometimes more than 1 g. [13] Additional laboratory studies to rule out other causes of neuropathy, as well as cancer and bleeding diathesis, are also important.
