Background: Diabetes induced neuropathy is one of the most challenging complication of diabetes mellitus and is one of the major causes of non-traumatic limb amputation. The exact prevalence of diabetic neuropathy is not known and reports shows variable prevalence. There are good number of patients, who have subclinical neuropathy at the time of detection of diabetes. Aim: He aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of subclinical neuropathy in newly diagnosed diabetic patients…

Nerve Conduction Abnormalities in Newly Diagnosed Diabetes Mellitus Patients

TLDR
Performing nerve conduction studies is highly essential for early detection of diabetic peripheral neuropathy and proper management in patients with newly diagnosed diabetes mellitus.

A study of peripheral neuropathy in cases of type-II diabetes mellitus patients with or without hypothyroidism

TLDR
The study reveals that type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with hypothyroidism have higher prevalence of peripheral neuropathy, and all diabetic patients should be screened for early detection of hyp Timothyroidism.

Predictors of Nerve Conduction Study Parameters among Type 2 Diabetic Patients: A Cross -Sectional Study

TLDR
The negative correlations of nerve conduction parameters with different variables indicates subclinical nerve dysfunction, therefore thorough neurological examination along with NCS should be carried out early in the course of disease.

A Study of Nerve Conduction in Newly Diagnosed Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

TLDR
It would be prudent at the time of diagnosis of T2D itself to perform NCV to would ensure early diagnosis and optimize BG levels, and signifies that even in asymptomatic patients; neuropathy might have already set in with severity directly proportional to FBG.

Electrophysiological estimation of subclinical neuropathy and its types in diabetes mellitus patients

TLDR
Nerve conduction study is the best for diagnosing subclinical neuropathy in diabetes mellitus patients and statistical significance was observed between the duration of diabetes mell Titus, high triglyceride levels, high blood sugar profile and high HbA1C values with the presence of subclinical peripheral neuropathy.

The Rochester Diabetic Neuropathy Study

TLDR
Reproducibility of tests used to characterize and quantitate severity of neuropathy was found high r1 with small confidence intervals for the Neurologic Disability Score (NDS); weakness subset of NDS (W-NDS) and vibratory and cooling detection thresholds (using computer-assisted sensory examination [CASE] IV).

Variables influencing neuropathic endpoints

TLDR
The improved estimates of normal limits sometimes provide a different estimate of normality from the one that was available from age consideration only, and the percentile approach considering physical variables influencing neuropathic endpoints might be adopted by clinical EMG, sensory, and autonomic laboratories.

The prevalence by staged severity of various types of diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy, and nephropathy in a population‐based cohort

TLDR
Two thirds of diabetic patients have objective evidence for some variety of neuropathy, but only about 20% have symptoms, and only 6% of IDDM and only 1% of NIDDM patients have sufficiently severe polyneuropathy to be graded stage 2b, and none were graded stage 3.
