Free and lipid inositol, sorbitol and sugars in sciatic nerve obtained post-mortem from diabetic patients and control subjects


Sciatic nerves removed post-mort`em from diabetic patients and normal subjects were analysed by gas chromatography for glucose, fructose, sorbitol and myo-inositol. The concentrations of free and lipid inositol were significantly lower in nerves from the diabetic than from the control group. Concentrations of glucose, fructose and sorbitol were higher in… (More)
