Intensive diabetes treatment causes a considerable increase in the number of severe hypoglycaemic episodes which could aggravate the progression of diabetic neuropathy. However, the effect of repeated hypoglycaemic episodes on nerve morphology has never been previously investigated. The aims of the present study were: (i) to establish a rat model of recurrent episodes of severe hypoglycaemia, and (ii) to assess morphological changes after repeated hypoglycaemic episodes in rat sciatic nerves… CONTINUE READING
