OBJECTIVE To determine if hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for the development of diabetic sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy (DSPN) and diabetic autonomic neuropathy (DAN). BACKGROUND Hyperhomocysteinemia and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) are both associated with premature vascular disease. Microvascular ischemia may be a risk factor for DSPN and DAN; therefore, the relationship of hyperhomocysteinemia to DSPN and DAN was investigated. METHODS Baseline neurological… CONTINUE READING
