Evidence of Current Perception Threshold (CPT) to assess neural fiber function in healthy subjects suggests greater discrimination for stimuli at 1, 250 and 3000 Hz than at 5, 250 and 2000 Hz. Similar data are not yet described for subjects affected by diabetes mellitus. This study proposes to provide a comparative database of parameters obtained with sinusoidal electrical stimulation applied at 1, 5, 250, 2000 and 3000 Hz in subjects affected and non-affected by the diabetes. Ninety subjects… CONTINUE READING
