OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of peripheral neuropathy on gait in diabetic patients. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Gait analysis was performed in the following groups matched for age, sex, and BMI: 20 normal healthy control subjects (NC), 20 non-neuropathic diabetic control subjects (DC), 20 neuropathic diabetic subjects (DN), and 20 neuropathic(More)
Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is believed to cause postural instability due to abnormal proprioception. We assessed body sway in four groups, each of 20 subjects, matched for age, sex, and BMI: non-diabetic controls, non-neuropathic diabetic controls, subjects with diabetic neuropathy and no history of foot ulceration, and subjects with diabetic neuropathy(More)
A new insulin delivery system Vitajet has been invented which involves a high-pressure spring and obviates the use of needle injections. To study its efficacy we compared blood glucose fluctuations, integrated glycemia, free insulin and total free insulin concentrations in six insulin-dependent diabetics. After obtaining a steady state of carbohydrate(More)
Diabetic foot ulceration is currently a serious medical problem and has, therefore, attracted much research attention during the last two decades. Previous foot ulceration, diabetic neuropathy, limited joint mobility, high plantar pressures, microangiopathy, macroangiopathy and diabetic nephropathy have already been identified as risk factors for future(More)
Pretibial myxedema (PM) is a localized thickening of the pretibial skin due to accumulation of acid mucopolysacharides (glycosaminoglycans). Its pathogenesis is still under investigation. Pretibial myxedema, exophthalmus and thyroid acropachy are the dassic extrathyroidal manifestations of Graves' disease. Almost invariably, PM follows the onset of(More)
Acute hyperglycemia in diabetes mellitus is often associated with transient subjective visual disturbances that have not yet been objectively evaluated. We used a contrast sensitivity (CS) test to assess functional visual disturbances in provoked hyperglycemia in 20 patients with well-controlled insulin-dependent diabetes (40 eyes) with no evidence of(More)
