Peripheral neuropathy is a common and well-studied complication of diabetes mellitus, but the possibility that central neuropathy is also present has received scant attention. Based on recent evidence showing that insulin has a direct effect on axon formation and neuronal survival in vitro, it was predicted that functional neuropathy would be present in the spinal cord of diabetic animals. Although structural lesions are encountered in the spinal cord of diabetic patients at autopsy, the… CONTINUE READING
