High levels of serum heat shock protein 27 (sHSP27) have been associated with distal symmetric polyneuropathy in patients with type 1 diabetes. Our objective was to investigate the association between sHSP27, neuropathic signs and nerve function in individuals with normal glucose tolerance (NGT), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and type 2 diabetes.(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess small and large nerve fiber function in people with normal glucose tolerance (NGT), impaired glucose tolerance (IGT), and type 2 diabetes (T2D). RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Participants were recruited consecutively from a population-based cohort: NGT (n = 39), IGT (n = 29), and T2D (n = 51). Electrophysiological measures included nerve(More)

AIMS To compare the diagnostic usefulness of tuning fork, monofilament, biothesiometer and skin biopsies in peripheral neuropathy in individuals with varying glucose metabolism. METHODS Normoglycaemic, impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and type 2 diabetes (T2DM) individuals were recruited. Nerve conduction studies (NCS) and thermal threshold tests were(More)
AIM Diabetes mellitus type 1 (T1D) has numerous complications including autonomic neuropathy, i.e. dysfunction of the autonomous nervous system. This study focuses on Heat Shock Protein 27 (HSP27), Macrophage Migration Inhibitory Factor (MIF), Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) and HbA1c and their possible roles in effects of diabetes on the(More)
