OBJECTIVE To evaluate the contribution of central neuropathy on postural impairment observed in diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Central sensory and motor nervous propagation, nerve conduction velocity, and static posturography were assessed in the following age-matched subjects: 7 IDDM patients with peripheral neuropathy (group DN), 18 IDDM patients without peripheral neuropathy (group D), and 31 control subjects (group C). Somatosensory-evoked… CONTINUE READING
