Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were assessed under basal conditions and after photostress in normal control subjects, in insulin-dependent diabetic patients with retinopathy (IDDPWR) and in insulin-dependent diabetic patients without retinopathy (IDDP). The VEPs recorded under basal conditions showed a P100 latency significantly higher in IDDP and IDDP-WR(More)
Various electrophysiological tests have been employed to reveal functional abnormalities at different levels of the visual system in insulin-dependent diabetic (IDDM) patients. The aim of our work was to assess, with a comprehensive neurophysiological protocol evaluating the retinal, macular and visual pathways functions, whether and when such(More)
• Background: The study was performed in order to ascertain whether electrophysiological abnormalities in visual function exist in newly diagnosed diabetic patients. • Methods: Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were assessed under basal conditions and after photostress in normal control subjects and in newly diagnosed diabetic patients free of any(More)
Autonomic neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes. In this study we evaluated autonomic neuropathy by determining somatostatin (S-14)-evoked acetylcholine (Ach) release from postsynaptic parasympathetic fibers in the atria of controls (C) and streptozotocin diabetic rats (STZ-D), with and without tetrodotoxin (TTX). The release induced by S-14 did(More)
