Few reports exist on the association between the humoral immune response to glycolipids and neuropathic findings in diabetes. To address this issue, we assayed serum anti-GM1, GD1b, GD1a, and sulfatides IgG and IgM in a group of 85 non-selected diabetic patients, and correlated these antibodies to clinical and electrophysiological findings. Diabetic patients had higher mean titers of anti-GM1 (IgM), GD1b, GD1a, and sulfatide (IgG) antibodies when compared to healthy controls. Patients with a… CONTINUE READING
