Idiopathic Neuropathy: It’s Time to Have a Glucose Tolerance Test

If you been diagnosed with idiopathic peripheral neuropathy, and in today’s broadcast we are going to talk about running a test many patients have not had performed, and how this test is yielding significant information for doctors who are pursuing a diagnosis for idiopathic neuropathy patients. We will go through the evolution of how this test came to fruition for diagnosing neuropathy and how it has now been accepted as a gold standard test for diagnosing idiopathic neuropathy patients.
