Diabetes mellitus targets the peripheral nervous system in unique but disabling ways. Although several mechanisms may target peripheral neurons, they render a degenerative pattern of damage that begins in distal terminals. Moreover, sensory neurons are involved early, motor neurons later. By studying a variety of diabetic neuropathy models in rats, mice, and other species, an overall appreciation of its neurodegeneration emerges. Understanding how mechanisms of diabetes complications target… CONTINUE READING
