Nerve conduction velocity in man: influence of glucose, somatostatin and electrolytes


Insufficient metabolic control in diabetes mellitus is associated with a reversible reduction in nerve conduction velocity, but the mechanism behind this phenomenon is unknown. To examine the effect of acute hyperglycaemia on nerve conduction eight non-diabetic men (20–49 years of age) with no signs of peripheral neuropathy were studied before and after 3 h… (More)
