autonomic neuropathy

Does having the following symptoms can be diagnosed as having Autonomic Neuropathy?

  non-functioning gallbladder
  gustatory sweating with fatty food
  alternating diarrhea/constipation
  some orthostatic hypotension and low heart rate during aerobic exercises
  unexplained high blood pressure, shacking hands
  boderline diabetic

if the cause of autonomic neuropathy can be found and treated, can the nerves repair themselves and restore life to normal?  Thanks,

HI,
Several of those symptoms can be a part of neuropathic syndrome. The likelihood of reversal depends on the cause and how long the damage has been ongoing.
Take care

Hi, thanks for your reply.  Roughly how long is considered long for ongoing damages?  How about ongoing for 5 years, or even 10~20 years?  

Thanks!
