A random sample (n = 708) of people, stratified by age, sex, and glucose tolerance, from a Caucasian population aged 50 to 74 years was invited to undergo an examination including measures of large-fibre nerve function (ankle and knee reflexes, vibration sense, vibratory perception threshold (VPT) at the foot) and one measure of small-fibre function (thermal… CONTINUE READING
