: I was diagnosed with borderline diabetes and later developed painful neuropathy in both feet, although the diabetes hasn't gotten worse. The neuropathy has improved since I received treatment for an overactive thyroid. Does anyone know of a connection between hyperthyroidism and neuropathy?

I found your question interesting because I have HYPOthyroidsim -- and I was diagnosed with
borderline diabetes. I also had very painful neuropopathy in both feet. Like you, borderline diabetes
has not gotten worse. In fact, I was able to stabilize my blood sugar problem to within the normal range
within two years of thyroid diagnosis. One of the main things that has aided in abatement of neuropathy
has been B12 supplementation via injection and food. Interesting possible connection -- even though yours
is "hyper" and mine is "hypo". Charlotte Jensen
