There is a potential association between Bells and diabetes-

Under google search more pops up too-

The VA doesn't seem to want to pay more than 10% for this condition unless it fulflls a criteria within:

If a doctor will state that your Bell's Palsy is more than likely due to the diabetes, you could get this as secondary-it would help too if the doctor sees a few printouts from the net as to the potential association-unless there is another reason for it ,other than the diabetes.

Seems like it could be a type of peripheral neuropathy to me-
