Overview

Comprised of contributions from a wealth of experts worldwide, this volume summarizes the latest research findings and new developments in diagnosis and treatment of diabetic neuropathy. While the actual cause of diabetic neuropathy, a common complication of diabetes mellitus, is not known, it is likely that no single mechanism predominates—rather that various mechanisms interact and culminate in the expression of neuropathy. The progressive nature of diabetic neuropathy and the high morbidity associated with it emphasize the need for early identification of patients at risk, particularly since the disease, if diagnosed early, can be corrected or controlled by intensified insulin treatment and strict metabolic control.
